I for one am a fan of the weekend.  And my weekend is here!


July was a particularly busy month for me so I didn’t get out and around town a whole lot.  And most schools will resume instruction this upcoming week (some have already started!) making this weekend the last weekend of summer break!  So how will you spend it?

Below is a list of events I’m interested in and would like to attend.  What other events are happening that you know of?  Share them in the comments!


Have a fun weekend in Arizona!  Click the links for more information.
