Get Outdoors This Fall!
With temperatures coming down, the late summer and early fall is a great time to be in Southern Arizona! Throughout the fall there’s a wealth of opportunities to get out of the air conditioning, from getting right in front of the stage at HoCo Fest, to meeting the animals at Reid Park Zoo, to picking out the best pumpkin at the Marana Pumpkin Patch. Whether you love the poetry in motion of Wildcats football, or the incredible athleticism of the dancers at Ballet Tucson, this fall there’s something for everyone.
