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 Powers Hannley

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 focuses on economic reforms to grow Arizona's economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, growlocal small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs. I also stand for equal rights, choice, and paycheck fairness for women. I am running as a progressive and running clean.

My day job is managing editor for the American Journal of Medicine, an academic medicine journal with a worldwide circulation. In addition, my husband and I co-direct Arizonans for a New Economy, Arizona's public banking initiative. I am a member of the national board of the Public Banking Institute, and I am co-chair of the Arizona Democratic Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus of the Arizona Democratic Party.

I am a published author, photographer, videographer, clay artist, mother, nana, and wife. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio State University and a masters in public health from the University of Arizona. I grew up in Amherst, Ohio, but I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1981. I am a proud member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson and the Public Relations Society of America.

My Tucson Progressive blog and Facebook page feature large doses of liberal ideas, local, state, and national politics, and random bits of humor. I also blog at Blog for Arizona and the Huffington Post.
