AZ Summer Happenings

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 24, 2012

Here are a few of our favorite things to do in Arizona over the summer. Take a look and comment with any of your favorites that we missed! 

After Dark in the Park 
Deer Valley Park stays alive the evening of June 30. Local food vendors will offer their best, or pack a picnic basket of your own. Live music and fun inflatable jumpers for kids begin at 7 p.m. and a fireworks show starts at 8:45 p.m. Free admission. 19602 N. 19th Ave, Phoenix. 

Arizona Diamondbacks Baseball
We love our D-backs! Check out the link above for schedule of games this summer, and we’ll see you at the ballpark! 

Bite Nite 
The ALS Association Arizona’s culinary event benefiting Lou Gehrig’s Disease research, pits the Valley’s hottest and most respected chefs against each other for the title of Bite Nite Heavyweight Champion. The evening features tasting-size samples of delightful morsels in four categories: appetizer, entrée, dessert and cocktail. Tickets are $125, so if you are looking for a fun and fancy date night, this is a great pick! 

Flashlight Tours at Desert Botanical Garden 
Nights in the Desert are anything but dull. Nighthawks fly, night-blooming flowers open, toads sing and owls watch, as you stroll along the trails there is a surprise around each corner. Be ready to be adventurous! You will view critters such as snakes, scorpions, and desert tortoises first hand at guided stations. Great for families and children of all ages. Thursdays and Saturdays / June, July and August / 7-9 p.m. 

Itty Bitty Beach Party 
Select City of Phoenix pools will host pool parties with games, dance contests, swimsuit contests, refreshments and prizes for preschoolers and their parents (ages 6 and under). Check the Phoenix.gov calendar for dates and locations in June. 

McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park Free Concerts 
Enjoy free concerts every Sunday evening from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. Bring a blanket or chair to hear your favorite local bands (click above for a complete schedule of performances). Train ride is $2.00 and carousel ride is $2.00 each. Children under three ride free with a paying adult. Food will also be available for purchase. May 6 – July 8, 7:30p.m. – 9:00p.m.
