4th Of July 2013 In Southern AZIt's that time of the year when our thoughts turn to an outdoor barbeque with family and friends followed by a spectacular firewords display.  If you are still deciding how to spend this 4th of July here's a list of events in and around Green Valley, AZ:

TUCSON, AZ: Kick off the holiday early with the 19th Anniversary Firewords Display at the Casino Del Sol in Tucson, AZ.  Billed as "the largest fireworks display in Tuscon"  this one is sure to dazzle.  Starts at approximately 9 p.m.

On July 4th you may have a tough time choosing among several outstanding venues:

TUBAC, AZ:   Definitely a local area favorite, this old fashioned Independence Day celebration offers something for everyone, young and old alike.   Family fun festivities begin at 4 p.m. at the Tubac Golf Resort & Spa with a Kid's Zone that will feature Southern Arizona's longest inflatable obstacle course.  There will also be face painting, kid’s games, lots of food booths, entertainment and Clydesdale wagon rides.

SAHUARITA, AZ: Join the fun at this backyard BBQ & Fireworks display at the Desert Diamond Casino.  There will be a kids zone and a live concert tribute to Garth Brooks and Faith Hill inside the Diamond Center followed by the fireworks. 

BISBEE, AZ:  Discover a treasured place where times seems to have stopped...Bisbee, AZ.  The big day starts with the world famous Coaster Race (which is a tradition going back more than 100 years!) on Historic Tombstone Canyon.  Stroll through the many one of a kind shopts, watch the annual traditional parade in the Western section of Bisbee and be sure to enjoy the crowd pleasing mining, mucking and hard-rock drilling contest.
