Mesa Temple Easter Pageant
Location: Mesa, AZ- Runs 10 days before Easter annually
Website: Mesa Easter Pageant
The Easter Pageant is one fantastic and free date/family activity the two weeks before Easter. If you've never heard of it, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints puts this show on with all volunteer actors and makes it free to the public. There are English, Spanish, and ASL shows. It takes place in Mesa, AZ at the Mormon temple. But you don't have to be a Mormon to go, it's open to the public.
It's even more fun when you go with friends
(and isn't Tia the cutest prego ever?)
We also love to get there early and bring a picnic dinner
You'll know you're in the right place because the stage looks like this
And if you go, you'll see the story of Christ's life acted on stage in about an hour presentation. This includes The Last Supper
Judas betraying Christ, and his trial.
The rejoicing of Christ's Atoning sacrifice being completed
And the Resurrection.
It is incredibly well done! It's something all Christians look forward to every Easter season. If you want to go, there are more details HERE. It's worth it, I promise!
