Things To Do in Mesa, Arizona for the First Week of February

Upcoming Events:

The Spring Out to Lunch Concert Series begins this Thursday, February 3rd.  Enjoy a free concert every Thursday from 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM at the MAC's Wells Fargo Garden.  This week is the Salt River Brass Quintet. 

Show your support of diversity.  Participate in the Unity Walk.  Several cities from around the valley will come together this Saturday, February 4th from 10:00 AM - Noon.  "Mesa residents should arrive at their assembly point by 10 a.m. at the Tempe Center for the Arts parking lot. The one mile walk to Tempe Beach Park begins at 10:30 a.m. Walkers are encouraged to wear turquoise or teal-colored shirts. There will also be free T-shirts available at the assembly point on a first-come basis.  The walk will be followed by the Unity Walk Festival at Tempe Beach Park with entertainment and food."  Information from here.

This Saturday, February 4th, we will be heading down to the Phoenix Zoo to participate in the Tillamook cheese "Loaf Love Tour."  The first 100 guest to arrive at the zoo wearing bright orange will get into the zoo free. Everyone else wearing orange after the first 100 get $1 off.  We are excited to sample their tasty cheese (we LOVE cheese), get coupons, meet Loafy, and participate in the scavenger hunt.  "Free entry starting at 9:00 a.m. until limit reached. Participating fans may check-in at the Tillamook Baby Loaf bus located outside the Phoenix zoo main gate."  I hope you are one of the first 100!  The fun lasts until 5:00 PM.  For more information, go to Tillamook's website here.

If you don't get in to the Phoenix Zoo for free wearing your orange, maybe you can if you are a Bank of America Customer.  Go here to learn more.

As always, Motorcycles on Main is this Friday night, February 3rd, in Downtown Mesa.  Come and meet one of the Simpsons' animators at Gotham City Comics and Coffee.  Information on FB here.

Also on Friday night is MCC's monthly Astronomy Night from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM.  This is a free event at the Southern and Dobson Campus.  Enjoy use of their telescopes and a planetarium show.  Fun for a date or for the whole family.  Information from here.

And if you want something really unique, check out Circus Vargas going on right now through February 6th at Arizona Mills Mall.  This is truly a big top circus.  Forget the animals, this is all about humans doing amazing and entertaining tricks.  You can read another blogger's first hand experience and enter for a chance to win tickets.    

As part of First Friday's in Phoenix, adults can enjoy the Arizona Science Center for free this Friday, February 3rd from 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM.  Leave the kids at home and enjoy all the exhibits yourself.  My husband and I have been meaning to make a date night out of this.  We plan to ride the light rail to downtown, enjoy the center and grab a bite to eat.  Information from here.

And of course, don't forget the Fiesta Mall free entertainment each weekend.

Thanks for the wonderful blog! Just wondering if you were going to mention the Shred-athon going on this weekend? From what I understand, it's Mesa residents only (no businesses), 3 box limit, Sat 8-12, 2412 N Center St.
