Fun Things in Tucson for the Weekend of October 18-19

Gotta love these warm days and cool nights.  One of my favorite times of the year.  So get out and enjoy.  Here are some fun things to do both in Tucson and a short drive away.

Food Trucks at Camp Cooper on Saturday Evening
The Cooper Center or Environmental Learning in the Tucson Mountains, is celebrating 50 years of environmental learning in the Sonoran Desert this weekend. The celebration begins with the Tucson Food Truck Roundup at 5pm and continuing until 8pm.  There are also urban wildlife presentations, night sky viewing and mariachis!  Click the link for more information and directions: Camp Cooper 50th Anniversary

Tucson Concert Band's First Concert of the Season
Cholla High School's beautiful auditorium will be the setting for the Tucson Concert Band's opening concert of the 2014-15 season. And yes, I will be there in the middle of the trombone section playing along on an assortment of traditional and modern band classics, jazz, opera overtures and even a polka tune.  It will be a fun afternoon beginning at 2pm.

Willcox Wine Country Fall Festival
If you want a short trip out of town, try the Willcox Wine Country Fall Festival on Saturday and Sunday.  Set in Railroad Park in Historic Downtown Willcox, the festival features great food, music and of course, wine tasting.  Did you know that the Willcox area produces 74% of Arizona's wine grapes?  Go check it out.

The Civilian Conservation Corps in Saguaro National Park 
For a beautiul Sunday afternoon drive in the Sonoran Desert, head over to Saguaro National Park West for a 2:15pm talk on the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps in the park. The Civilian Conservation Corps was a Great Depression-era work program that greatly influenced national, state, and county parks. Saguaro's trails, picnic areas, and scenic drives were established during this program. This 45-minute indoor talk includes old photos and movie clips in a brief history of the CCC in this area.  The park visitor center is located 2 miles northwest of the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
