AAA Magazine, Highroads, has a calendar of events taking place in Arizona over the long, hot, dry summer. Here are a few of them:
Jul 2-Oct 1 - The Grand Canyon Railway Steam Train in Williams, AZ. Tours to the Grand Canyon. True West includes this train engine in its review of trains that came out this month. Interesting.
Jul 8-10 - 19th Annual Prescott Indian Art Market, Prescott. Ends today. Better hurry to catch that one.
Jul 9-30 - Arizona Authors Summertime Storytelling & Craft Saturdays, Phoenix. Programs are perfect for children in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade, taking place at the Pueblo Grande Museum. Great for authors of children's stories.
Jul 16 -Stargaze Kayaking, Yuma. Age 18 and over bring your field glasses and kayak (or just yak) on the Colorado River.
Jul 23 - Payson Book Festival, Payson. Was planning on attending, but the deadline passed befsore I knew it, even though I had plenty of time to sign up. This is the second year for this event and should be exciting for authors who signed up.
Jul 22-24 - National Day of the Cowboy Celebration in Sedona. Historical re-enactments, gunfights, roping, storytelling and poetry, western music and dance. Need I say more? Okay, I will. There will also be cowboy trades and art demonstrations and children's activities. If you are a cowboy and want to be traded, this is the place!
Now is the time to visit Arizona and attend some great events!
