Happy 244th Old Pueblo!

You won’t want to miss these official events that celebrate our city’s birthday.

Enjoy a mayoral proclamation, mariachi music, Chinese Lion Dance, an appearance by the Greater Southern Arizona Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers, and classic Mexican and American folk music by Ted Ramirez.

After the event, stop by the railroad art exhibits next door in the Amtrak lobby, and don’t miss the menu at Maynards Market & Kitchen.
