Tucson's 2nd Saturdays ~ urban but intimate

So if you haven't yet been to a "2nd Saturday" event, you must check it out! Downtown Tucson is turned into a walking, shopping, eating, entertaining venue with live music, food and merchandise vendors and all sorts of performance art. There were stilt walkers and Santas and plenty to see and hear.

The centerpiece of the evening was a concert at the beautifully restored historic Fox Theatre. It's an Art Deco gem that was meticulously brought back to its heyday glory. See photo of part of the lobby ceiling. The band that rocked the Fox is Five Way Street and they performed a selection of Crosby, Stills, & Nash (and a little Young and a little Buffalo Springfield, too!). These guys ROCK! For more about where to hear them around town, click here: http://www.fivewaystreet.com/

More photos of the "Downtown 2nd Saturday" event tomorrow.... stay tuned. http://www.2ndsaturdaysdowntown.com/

  1. This sounds like loads of fun. I'll have to get down there to see that theatre. The ceiling is gorgeous.
