The Sun Lakes Arizona 9th annual Luminaria Walk is a breathtaking walk around Oakwood Country Club’s Diamond Lake. Saturday and Sunday December 14th and 15th, 2013 was the scene of a spirit of sharing and holiday cheer and many homeowners and guests enjoyed the sights and sounds of Christmas.
1000 Luminarias reflect off of Oakwood Country Club’s Diamond Lake for a spectacular array of colors and beauty of the holiday season.
In the gated community of Oakwood Country Club in Sun Lakes Arizona is a gorgeous lake – Diamond Lake – with beautiful homes and a walking path enjoyed by homeowners in the IronOaks community. The Luminaria Walk begin in 2005 when a Unit Captain came up with the idea to line the walking path solely for the pure enjoyment of the homeowners around the lake. Soon other residents of Oakwood Country Club were invited to enjoy the annual event. The Luminaria Walk is funded by resident donations and volunteers. The event has grown each year and is attended by several thousand homeowners and visitors and the IronOaks Homeowner Association assists to defray some of the costs of this very popular annual walk. Small choirs and carolers can be heard as attendees stroll around the walking path admiring the sights.
As the Luminaria Walk has grown attendees are asked to bring non-perishable food items to share with those in need especially at the holiday time. A sizeable donation of food and cash is made to the Chandler Christian Community Center each year. What a joy to see the trucks filling up with bags of food and smiles on the faces of those donating.
