The Glow, an annual lighted art walk and musical extravaganza, is this weekend, September 9-10 at the Triangle L Ranch in Oracle, Arizona.

If you have never been to The Glow, take a drive up Oracle Road this weekend for this unique, family-friendly community event.

The Glow is the brainchild of artist and Triangle L owner Sharon Holnback, who has been hosting and perfecting the event for several years.

The Glow is a little different each year, but it’s always an experience. But don’t believe me. Check out the video below with photos from past Glows (2007-10).  The Glow website also has a gallery (scroll down) and particulars about this year’s event, including a schedule of bands and other performers, as well as a list of participating artists.

The fun starts at 7 p.m. There is food at the event, but there are also several great restaurants along the route. (Watch out for the speed traps and Oro Valley cops, also along the route. The speed limit changes at least 5 times between Ina Road and the Triangle L.)

    Wow, never heard of this artist/musician event in Oracle.  Was wondering about ticket costs and the info was on the website: $10 adults, $5 under 18 with guardian, under 3 free. Thanks for the info Pam.

        The Glow is awesome. Sharon is always tweaking the mix of art, music, and performance, so each year is a little different. I have been going every year since 2004– the year the full moon was on my birthday and the year I got laid off. We partied the night away, dancing to Kid Squid; it helped me forget that I was broke.

    It’s a fun event, Carolyn. You guys should go.

    My artwork also will be there– in the Barn Gallery and the gift shop. We plan to go up early (to make sure my artwork lights up properly), go to the Oracle Inn for dinner (good food, cheap drinks), and then back to the Glow for the music and people watching.

    I was out of town last year, but went the year before.  It was well worth the trip.  I hope the weather cooperates.

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela J. Powers

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals–not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election.

My platform focused on economic reforms to grow Arizona’s economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, grow local small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs.

In the Arizona House, I was a strong voice for fiscal responsibility a moratorium on corporate tax breaks until the schools were fully funded, increased cash assistance to the poor, expansion of maternal healthcare benefits, equal rights, choice, unions, education at all levels and protecting our water supply.

After three terms, I retired from the Arizona Legislature in January 2023 but will continue to blog and produce my podcast “A View from the Left Side.”
