This holiday season, the Downtown Chandler Community Partnership is launching a new interactive display of holiday decorations in downtown Chandler called "Sugarland."

The display will be located in Dr. A.J. Chandler Park West from Saturday, Nov. 28 through Sunday, Jan. 3.


Downtown Chandler visitors can snap a photo in the candy sleigh next to the Tumbleweed Tree, slide down the fruit roll-up slide, climb over marshmallows spilling out of a life-size cup of hot chocolate and dance through the candy canes any time, all with social distancing guidelines in place, according to a news release from the Downtown Chandler Community Partnership.

“Sugarland is the perfect backdrop for family photos and overall enjoyment as you stroll the downtown shopping and dining,” DCCP Executive Director Mary Murphy-Bessler said in a news release. “We are so proud to be able to offer a safe and whimsical option for visitors to Downtown Chandler, and [we] are excited to build upon the display in the years to come.”
