Celebrate the Season with ACE Recycling at the Avondale Winterfest

The City of Avondale will hold its annual Winterfest on Saturday, December 7th from 5 – 8 pm at the Avondale Civic Center’s outdoor amphitheater (11465 W Civic Center Drive, Avondale 85323).  The event is free to attend. 

This is a great way to kickoff the Holiday Season with family and community.  Come see the lights, play in the snow and enjoy good food and sweet treats. There will be rides and Holiday themed activities, including cookie decorating, a Story Time booth and various other activities and crafts, coordinated by WHAM.  The Arizona Coyotes Street Team will be there to cheer you on as you take your best shot on the outdoor street hockey rink. Santa will be joining the festivities and be available to take pictures inside Avondale City Hall.

To top off the evening Mayor Weise, City Council members and Santa will lead a lighting ceremony at 5:55 pm, followed by performances by community groups, including Studio 21 Dance, Luke Air Force Choir and Bravo Dance Family.  The synchronized musical light show will continue throughout the Season for all to enjoy.

ACE Recycling will be set up outside City Hall with information and giveaways.  Stop by to learn more about what we do, shake hands and pick up your Holiday treat.  We look forward to seeing you!
