Mesa, AZ – For the second consecutive year, Merry Main Street, presented by SRP and the Arizona Coyotes, will bring thousands of holiday revelers to downtown Mesa. The spectacular celebration of the season will be held Nov. 25 through Jan. 1.

The festivities begin Friday, Nov. 25 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. with an evening of music, food, and fun for everyone. Beginning with a program and tree lighting ceremony at 5:45 p.m. at Main Street and Macdonald, you can spend the evening strolling through downtown enjoying the sights and sounds of the holiday season.

Merry Main Street will again feature the Winter Wonderland Ice Rink of more than 4,000 square feet that will be open for 40 days. Last year, it attracted more than 10,000 ice skaters.

Other key attractions at Merry Main Street will be the Jack Frost Food Truck Forest, a large holiday tree that is more than three stories tall and Santa’s Selfie Village. Friday and Saturday evenings will feature arts, crafts and local vendors along Main Street. Watch for more details as we get closer to the event at www.merrymainstreet.com.
