60-year tradition continues December 1-2


Pageant Keeps Cave Creek History Alive

By Curtis Riggs – Cave Creek history comes to life December 1-2 with the 60th Annual Cave Creek Christmas Pageant. Held at the entrance of the Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area, the pageant started in 1952 by the Cave Creek 4-H Club as a re-enactment of the Christmas story, showcasing Club members’ animals. Longtime Cave Creeker Toby Payne heads the event and says he’s helped produce 25 pageants put on by the Kiwanis Club of Carefree.

“There wouldn’t be a Pageant without the volunteer crews, local youth and adults in the cast and choir, animal owners and Kiwanis Key Club ‘angels’ who place and the light the five-plus miles of beautiful luminaria leading to the pageant site.”

The pageant is free. It will start at 7pm on both nights. People should dress warmly and bring a chair or blanket to sit on. |CST
