**The 4th of July holiday is right around the corner. Looking for something to do? Me too... lets see what I found... 

First off, there is something for everyone from concerts, to firework shows, to water play, to smaller easy-going events! 
Not all cities are hosting fireworks shows this year, partially due to the economy, but with a little bit of a drive you should have no problem finding something to do! Fireworks can be found in the following cities; Anthem, Apache Junction, Casa Grande, Chandler, Gilbert, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Maricopa, Peoria, Phoenix, Surprise, and Tempe.

Looking for a Concert...
  • Rawhide at Wildhorse Pass in Chandler, Arizona's largest western-theme park, is hosting a large 4th of July event. There will be stunt and magic shows, singing, rock climbing wall, mechanical bull, an opportunity to take old western photos, shop at more than 10 stores, an aerial fireworks display, and you can eat at the Rawhide Steakhouse and Saloon. It costs $15.00 to get in to the park.
Interested in lakeside and a large crowd, TV crews included...
  • Tempe Fireworks display is very popular, held at Tempe Town Lake near ASU. The gates for the event open at 4 PM with inflatable rides, rock climbing, live entertainment, food, and the Budweiser Beer Garden. Children under 12 are free and tickets at the door are $8 for one and $15 for two. Buy tickets in advance at Fry's for $5. For more information and pictures visit, http://www.tempe4th.com/
Want to see the largest free fireworks show in the valley of the sun...
  • It takes place in the city of Phoenix. The fun starts at 6 PM and runs until 10 PM. There will be local entertainment, misting area, classic car show, inflatable rides, and you can cool down in the water spray zone hosted by the Phoenix Fire Department. Fireworks begin at 9:20 PM. Admission is free and food and beverages are available for purchase. http://phoenix.gov/news/061909fabphx4th.html
Low key holiday...
  • Scottsdale's 4th of July activities are not as large as some of the other cities in the valley. They are hosting a laid back picnic affair without huge crowds. It is held at the Scottsdale stadium from 5 to 7 PM. At this BBQ letters will be written to our servicemen and women and care packages will be sent. You can take part in games and crafts. People are urged to bring their own picnic dinner as grills are available. There are no fireworks at this event, but maps of nearby events will be provided. Admission is free.
*~*If your not into fireworks then go see a movie. There are many great movies being released all summer long. Or take a stay-vacation! Hotel Indigo Scottsdale has rates at just $72.00 a night on 4th of July weekend! *~*
