WINTERHAVEN 2016 FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
WINTERHAVEN RIDES PAGE
What is it? It is a 40 minute tour of the Winterhaven Festival of Lights on a jeep drawn wagon. Come and join the fun and bring your donations for the Tucson Food Bank!
Emissions? In 2014 we introduced propane power to our jeep fleet. This provides a tremendous reduction in emissions and is an approved "green" alternative to gasoline. In fact, many forklifts run indoors with propane power and it is what is used by Disneyland! Lets keep working together for a cleaner, greener winterhaven!
