During the holiday season, the City of Scottsdale will host Scottsdazzle, a month-long holiday celebration.
Scottsdazzle will kick off with a tree-lighting and holiday sing-a-long on Sat., Nov. 25 at 6 p.m., with the presence of Mayor Jim Lane and members of the Scottsdale City Council.
The month-long celebration incorporates several signature events scattered throughout December as well as other ongoing festivities and specialty artwork.
The signature events and art installations include:
Two art installations
Waterfront canal banks | Nov. 25 – Dec. 24
Prismatica has 25 giant revolving prism sculptures placed along the Scottsdale Waterfront. Visitors can walk among them to see city life in every color of the spectrum and turn the prisms to make the colors dance. After sunset, the enormous interactive kaleidoscope’s illusory effects reach a crescendo. The rotation of the prisms also triggers variable-intensity bell music.
Reflection Rising by Poetic Kinetics will engage the area along the Arizona Canal at the Scottsdale Waterfront. The suspended kinetic sculpture is designed to maximize the experience for viewers throughout the space. Beneath an open sky, tethered elusively on the cusp of flight, Reflection Rising is a constant reminder of nature moving around us.
