There are still a number of days until Christmas but everyone is already getting into the holiday spirit!  We are lucky to have the city of Prescott officially named "Arizona's Christmas City"  Prescott was named Arizona's Christmas City by Governor Rose Mofford in 1989, in recognition of the community’s dedication to the Christmas spirit.  As always this time of the year there are great events and festivities throughout the Prescott area.
