Photos: Winterhaven Festival of Lights in color today and black and white in the past

The annual Winterhaven Festival of Lights in the Winterhaven neighborhood on Ft. Lowell Road and Country Club Road in Tucson. 

The event was started in 1949 by Winterhaven's original developer, C.B. Richards, after he visited some similar neighborhood light displays in Beverly Hills, Calif. In fact, the whole neighborhood was designed in hopes of one day being able to host a big holiday festival like the one we see today.

There is no admission. However, a donation to the Community Food Bank is requested. Go to winterhavenfestival.org for more information.
