Have you ever wondered how to appropriately celebrate Easter? Over the years, we have. Now we
have found the way—bring the entire family to the Easter Pageant in Mesa. In 2015, Easter falls on
Sunday, April 5, 2015. The Easter Pageant at the Mesa Arizona Temple and Visitors’ Center will run the
two weeks preceding Easter--March 24, 2015 to March 28, 2015 and March 31, 2015 to April 3, 2015.
The Pageant depicts the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as part of Heavenly Father’s
plan of happiness. It is appropriate for all ages—mixing live animals, stunning visual effects, lovely
choreography and beautiful music.
The Pageant lasts just one hour from 8 to 9 p.m. Mesa in March is heavenly with soft night
temperatures in the low to mid--70s.
The photographs below show the pageantry and grandeur of the performance. The 480 cast members
are all volunteers from the Mesa area.
