Mesa Temple Easter Pageant
Location: Mesa, AZ- Runs 10 days before Easter annually
Website: Mesa Easter Pageant
We heart holiday dates. They are easy, fun, and never seem to get old since you only do them max once a year. Since we're members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints we are big time celebrators of Easter and Christmas. The Mesa Temple puts on an Easter Pageant once a year that reenacts the scenes exactly depicted in the King James Version of the Bible from Christ's birth to resurrection. It's a powerful hour to sit outside, enjoy perfect weather, and really remember what Easter is all about.
It's not too late to go if you live in AZ- it's going from 8:00 p.m. until 9:10 Friday and Saturday. It's free, and members of any denomination (or none) are welcome to go see scriptures preformed live. I highly recommend it, it's cool stuff from an academic and a spiritual standpoint.
SO, you have to get there at least 90 minutes early to get great seats, meaning 6:15 we were there. The wait goes WAY faster when you have your BFF to goof around with, ushers/people getting into tiffs, and some Jason's Deli to go to enjoy while you wait. We did this last year, we'll do it again next year. Food+Spiritual Feast= one great date!
