As June comes to a close, Fourth of July weekend quickly approaches. While everyone has fireworks, American flags and smoky barbecue on the brain, we know there are still a lot of things to lots to do around Maracay Homes’ neighborhoods after the holiday is over. Here are a few of our favorite events around the Valley and Tucson:
Christmas in July
Saturday, July 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Get into the holiday spirit a little early this year in Historic Downtown Glendale during the 10th annual Christmas in July celebration. Visitors will enjoy a fun-filled day of holiday crafts, sweets and deals from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ollie the Trolley will also provide free rides around the area, kids can take a photo with Santa, and a holiday-themed gift item will be given to the first 250 visitors.
Superhero Party at the Splash Pad
Saturday, July 9 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
In honor of Parks and Recreation Month, the town of Queen Creek is hosting a Superhero Party at the Splash Pad at Founders’ Park. Come dressed in your hero attire, stay cool, splash around and have a blast. There will be a DJ playing tunes, and Kona Ice and Hot Dog Kings will be selling food.
Second Saturdays at Steam Pump Ranch
Saturday, July 9 from 8 a.m. to noon
Take a tour of Oro Valley’s historic Steam Pump Ranch, and have some fun with the whole family family on July 9. Get crafting, take a guided tour, listen to live music and browse the Artisan Market. All of these activities are free for all ages.
