Downtown Mesa will soon transform into an attraction you won’t want to miss – the annual Arizona Celebration of Freedom, June 29 – 30 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. There will be numerous activities and events taking place throughout the weekend that will be fun for the whole family. Outdoor music stages will be spread along Main Street with live music playing during the night. Kids can enjoy the KOOL Zones and Wet Zones. Beer gardens and food booths will be located on both sides of Main Street. Be sure to get there early as the streets of Downtown Mesa fill with residents and visitors ready to celebrate the nation’s birth.
One event to check out is the High Octane Car Show, taking place Friday and Saturday along Main Street between Robson and Macdonald, featuring classic, custom hot rods, and low rider cars and trucks. If you own a classic car you are invited to register for this stellar event. Select vehicles can even win a cash prize! If you own a motorcycle or if you love them, Motorcycle Mania, on Main Street from Robson to Country Club, will be filled with cycles and their enthusiastic owners. Park your ride there or cruise around and stop by all the events taking place.
One highlight not to be missed is the Cox Freedom Plaza’s Fallen Heroes Memorial and the World’s Largest LEGO® American Flag will be displayed. Friday at 7:30 p.m., special guest John Schneider will be providing a benefit concert for GO*VETS Foundation at the Mesa Arts Center, Piper Theater.
