Embrace the spirit of the season at The Phoenician’s 3rd Annual “Up & Away Winter Holiday” on Saturday, December 26. Resort guests and Valley residents are cordially invited to join us from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. as we host an enchanting evening at the resort’s historic Jokake Inn.  In addition to tethered hot air balloon rides, a horse-drawn carriage, face painting, and live music by the band NORTH, this year’s festivities will also include new offerings such as a Ferris wheel, cookie decorating and a picture-worthy human snow globe that is sure to delight. Round out the evening with s’mores & stargazing from 6 p.m.-7 p.m.  For an additional fee, patrons can also enjoy holiday cocktails from the cash bar while youngsters can sip hot cocoa. Culinary specialties – such as Kobe beef sliders, Italian pressed Paninis and chicken Satay – will also be available from Relish Burger Bistro, Il Terrazzo and J&G Steakhouse – along with signature items from The Phoenician Bakery. Whether you’re a first time visitor to the Valley of the Sun, or a member of the community, the evening is sure to capture the magic of the season for guests of all ages.
