What's happening this week in Phoenix?

The temperatures will warm up to the mid-70s, which will be perfect weather to hit the ice skating rink in City Scape or you can head to many of the Valley's lighted displays--Phoenix ZooLights, Glendale Glitters or Chandler's Tumbleweed Tree.

The Phoenix Suns take on the Orlando Magic and the Portland Trailblazers this week and the Arizona Coyotes take on the Minnesota Wild.

Also happening this week: the Phoenix Festival of the Arts at Hance Park.
