Rodeo weekend is coming to an end, so what better way to end it with the fourth annual Rodeo Days Arts Celebration. The event starts at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 23, at the Plaza Palomino, 2960 N. Swan Road. There will be live music by Mariachi Herradura, Arizona Dance Hands and Sonoran Dogs. There will be over 40 fine art, leather, metal, wood, furniture, jewelry artists showcasing their work. Enjoy wine tasting and craft beer by Thunder Canyon Brewery and Nimbus Brewing Company for sale. Local eateries Vero Amore, Café Francais and BBQ Rush will be there.
Don't miss the quick draw-off between Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and Mayor Bob Walkup at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. The quick draw referee David Fitzsimmons invited me to compete in the drawing competition, so come and watch me scribble stick figures with some local personality you know and love. I hope they put me against Jim Click or Lute Olsen. It's payback, fellas.
It's free to attend and there will be $6 horse drawn carriage rides.
