2017 Fall Events in Marana
Marana is the perfect marriage of peace, tranquility, activity, and events. There’s always something going on, and – no matter what your interests – you’re sure to find a few activities that will intrigue your mind or tempt your taste buds.
Here are a few autumn events around Marana you won’t want to miss:
Creatures of the Night
The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum will be wrapping up its Cool Summer Nights experience as summer turns into fall. If you haven’t witnessed the things that go bump in the night firsthand, this is a show you shouldn’t miss!
You’ll start your adventure as the day begins to turn into night, bringing with it a spectacular sunset across the vistas. Once the blanket of night encapsulates you, a star-studded sky will be above you, while nocturnal creatures awaken from their daytime naps. The desert is alive and vibrant while you’re sleeping, and this is your chance to see nature from a whole new lens.
Be ready to watch acrobatic bats, playful beavers, and glowing green scorpions. Each week, a different theme outlines the adventures for the evening.
Looking for a way to make the most of your visit? Grab a meal at one of the museum’s restaurants before settling in for a night of nocturnal adventures.
Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing
The upcoming partial solar eclipse is making big headlines, and people everywhere are excited to witness a spectacular moment in science as it comes to life before their very eyes.
The eclipse should occur on Monday, August 21st. There will likely be events all over town ushering in the newest solar eclipse. To keep up on possible event venues, be sure to check out the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association’s official site.
Showdown in Tombstone
Welcome back to the wild, wild West. Long before cell phone and cars were a normal part of life, pioneers and cowboys were fighting for their territories. What’s now a beautiful, peaceful town was once a riotous, gun-slinging corridor filled with ruckus.
This is your opportunity to step back in time and see what life was like when gun powder and leather were the most popular creature comforts available. Showdown in Tombstone provides plenty of street entertainment and features live reenactments of the way things were back in the 1880s. This year’s Showdown is scheduled for Labor Day weekend, occurring from 10:00am to 4:00pm daily, Saturday, September 2nd through Monday, September 4th.
