TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Winterhaven is one of Tucson's largest Christmas traditions and it starts tomorrow.

Crews have been working for weeks to set up for the 66th annual Winterhaven festival of lights.

It is one of the longest running festivals of its kind in the entire country.

You can walk through the neighborhood or take a bike, trolley or hayride.

The festival is open to the public until Dec. 26th. It is open from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. every night and the entrance is at the intersection of Ft. Lowell and Prince.

The festival is free but volunteers ask that guests bring canned food donations or money for the Community food Bank of southern Arizona.

Last year, $18,000 was donated as well as 42,000 pounds of food.
