The Holiday Cheer Continues Show
The holiday fun continues as Fred and Jeff talk with Dr. Julian Ackerley from the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus about their 75th Annual Holiday Concert and the ever popular Christmas Tree Lot on (Ronstadt’s) Broadway Blvd just east of Columbus Blvd.
Then we all get a schooling about Winterhaven and the 65th Annual Festival of Lights!
The Brown Brothers talk about their family’s 50 year history in the historic neighborhood and Kathleen Bethel and Liz Baker discuss how a science fair project led to one of the most popular sites to visit during the holidays, the Wishing Tree!!!

It was my pleasure to join you two silly souls for a fun-filled journey back and forward through the nostalgic years in time– who knew there were so many special treasures that connect us all that I can claim in my own walk down memory lane?! Thanks for the opportunity to share the 50 years of joy, holiday spirit and yes, love, that The Brown Family of Winterhaven has shared with the masses since 1964. We intend to keep paying it forward for many, many more years to come.
We personally invite you, Fred and Jeff, along with your family and friends– to join us Saturday, December 20th at 6:30pm for a special concert on our front lawn! It’s a musical gift by Jovert Steel Drum ensemble hailing from Tucson High Magnate School, under the direction of Khris Dodge, performing a full 2-hour show packed with your holiday favorites! So, please come enjoy this gift from our family to yours– a Calypso Christmas!
