Merry Main Street

Tinsel and twinkle lights transform Downtown Mesa into a holly, jolly scene worthy of a Hallmark movie. Santa sightings, carolers, and quaint shops decked in wreaths and ribbons will get you right in the holiday spirit. Hunt for quirky gifts at local boutiques, then refuel at cozy cafes slingin’ holiday treats like hot cocoa and fresh-baked cookies. Cap the evening at Merry Main Street’s dazzling tree lighting ceremony on the first Friday of December. Afterward, let Party Bus Mesa whisk you away as you sing “Jingle Bells” back to your hotel. Our reclining seats and onboard entertainment systems make lounging as magical as Santa’s sleigh.

Las Noches De Las Luminarias

Let’s be real: the holidays are brighter with a bit of that spicy Southwestern spirit. Enter Las Noches De Las Luminarias (translation: Nights of the Luminarias). Organized by the Arizona Museum of Natural History, this outdoor event illuminates the desert trails with thousands of hand-lit lanterns. Stroll the enchanting and toasty paths while enjoying live mariachi music, folkloric dancers, and smokey aromas of street tamales and churros. A Party Bus Mesa team can shuttle your merry little group between the festivities and your homebase (or the nearest margarita spot, no judgement here.) With comfy coach buses for any group size, no one’s left shivering outside when the desert night cools down.

Tumbleweed Tree Lighting

Only in the Southwest could a tumbleweed transform into a sparkling holiday centerpiece. Each year just before Thanksgiving, Mesa assembles the World’s Tallest Tumbleweed Christmas Tree. Locals haul tumbleweeds from the surrounding desert, assembling into a towering display reaching up to 40 feet tall! The tree is then sprayed down, strung with lights, and decorated with fun desert-themed ornaments. Head to Downtown Mesa for the festive lighting ceremony or stop by throughout the season to marvel at this delightfully quirky attraction. Your Party Bus Mesa team will shuttle you and your buddies straight to the tree and stick around while you grab selfies galore. Just give us a holler at 623-633-7401 to book a road-ready set of wheels!
