What a wonderful morning!! Just about a mile by the way the crow flies, I have a beautiful National Park near my home called Saguaro National Park East. Well today, the park management put on a fabulous event called "Fiesta de Saguaro", which was a wonderful celebration of Hispanic heritage here in Tucson. It was so much fun!! There were Mariachis, Traditional Folk Dancers, with both adults and children, Indian Potters and Weavers, Children's Pinatas and a variety of traditional food offerings. Hopefully, my photos catch some of the excitement of this event, but alas, I wish I could share some of the wonderful music played by the Mariachis!
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
