Arizona's Centennial Celebrations

Throughout the year, we will keep you posted on events celebrating 100 years of Arizona statehood.

This weekend is the Arizona Best Fest held Saturday, February 11th from noon to 10:00 PM and Sunday, February 12th from noon to 6:00 PM at the Arizona State Capitol Mall and surrounding area along Centennial Way.  There will be music, educational pavilions, food, family zones, arts and crafts and more.  This is one of the main events of the celebration, so it should be fun.  Besides, it's kind of sad to say I haven't been down to the Capitol in years and it's time I took my girls!

On Statehood day (and Valentine's Day) from 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM, there will be a few activities at Phoenix City Hall and the Capitol.  Entertainment including Wayne Newton, food trucks, birthday cake, reenactments.... Go here for more details.

Also, on February 14th, National Parks will be having a fee free day to celebrate.  Go here to find a park you would like to visit.  I know we have enjoyed visiting several parks this year, including Sunset Crater and Wupatki National Monument.
