Winter Street Fair: How to get there and where to park

Posted By on Fri, Dec 7, 2018 at 1:42 PM

Fourth Avenue is one again taken over by a jumble of white tents and confusing road closures. With so many people attending the Winter Street Fair among other downtown events this weekend, parking can be a headache.

Here's how to get around this weekend according to Park Tucson:

This weekend there are free shuttles to the 4th Ave. Street Fair from both Pennington St. and Tyndall Garages.

Also, this weekend only, Park Tucson will not be enforcing residential permits in the neighborhoods surrounding the Street Fair, so extra street parking will be available.

The Sun Link Street Car has been diverted because of the tents covering its tracks, so riders can board Sun Tran buses from temporary end point stops at 4th Ave. and 9th St. and University Boulevard and 3rd Ave. to reach the street car's usual destinations.

So, don't worry UA students, you can sill get to your finals today!

For the entirety of the Street Fair (now through Sunday, Dec. 9) 4th Ave. will be closed to all traffic from University to 8th St. with the exception of 6th St. which will remain open. With over 300,000 people estimated to attend, the whole area is best avoided by car if possible. Walk, bike or ride to the fair and save yourself the parking headache.

It's that special time of year again and while you are busy shopping for your family, consider buying a toy for a local child in need. There are multiple toy drives happening all over Tucson this holiday season to make donating simple and easy.

SALVATION ARMY
  • Salvation Army
Stuff the Bus at Walmart

The Salvation Army is partnering with iHeart Media, SunTran and Walmart to stuff five SunTran busses full of toys on Friday, Dec. 14.

“This is our biggest event of the holiday season. It is vital we receive toy donations, so we can continue to serve the children of Tucson. Last year we were able to collect 3,684 toys and provided assistance to 1,500 families. The goal this year is to collect 6,000 toys and fill 5 SunTran buses with new toys so we can help more families in need this Christmas,” said Captain David Oh, The Salvation Army Tucson Area Coordinator.

Meet radio stars from 93.7 KRQ, Hot 98.3, My 92.9, 97.1 The Bull and KNST AM 790 when you bring new, unwrapped toys to the Walmart on Speedway and Kolb and make a local kid's holidays a little brighter.

More information about Stuff The Bus.

EMERGE! CENTER AGAINST DOMESTIC ABUSE

Holiday House at Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse

New, unwrapped donations can be dropped off at 2545 E. Adams Street through Dec. 10.

Boys & Girls Clubs Holiday Gift Drive at Walgreens

If you are stopping by Walgreens for your prescription or some last minute holiday cards, look for their decorated boxes for donations. Local Walgreens locations have partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson to collect toys for children from age 7 to 17 and other items such as pajamas, candy, gift cards, makeup and items you can conveniently pick up while in the store. Gifts are being collected through Dec. 11.

Fill the Streetcar

This year, the annual Miracle on 31st Street expects over 15,000 children to attend, so they need a lot of toys.

In 1970 Ramon Gonzales donated $125 of his own money to host a holiday party and cook hotdogs in his yard for children in his neighborhood that didn't have anything for the holidays.

Now, Miracle on 31st Street has grown into a huge event, hosted at Casino Del Sol's AVA Amphitheater, that provides toys, food and a holiday party for thousands of local kids.

The Regional Transportation Authority is helping collect toys for the event by filling a streetcar this holiday season. The Sun Link Streetcar will be parked on 8th Street, just west of 4th Avenue on Friday, Dec. 14 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Between 4 and 6 p.m. listen to songs from Salpointe and Canyon del Oro High School choirs and CDO Pep Band. And if you're lucky you might even see Santa! Find out more about the event here.

Operation Holiday Open House

Military families can head over to the Arizona Air National Guard 162nd Wing this Saturday, Dec. 8 to "go shopping" for the holidays for free! Throughout November and December the Military Assistance Mission has been collecting toys and other gifts for military children.

“This program, Operation Holiday Open House, is to thank those in uniform including the families, during this this very special time of year,’ said Margy Bons, Founder and CEO of Military Assistance Mission.

6620 S. Air Guard Way, building 5 just south of Valencia Rd. connected to Tucson International Airport.

So, happy holidays and merry giving! Help brighten a child's holiday this year.

The Music Man Opener Canceled

Posted By on Fri, Nov 30, 2018 at 11:21 AM

music_man_300x450.jpg
Fans of The Music Man will have to wait a little longer for the show to open in Tucson. Technical issues have caused the Arizona Theatre Company to cancel the first preview of the show, initially scheduled for Dec. 1.

“We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our ticket holders,” said ATC Managing Director Billy Russo. “We have no doubt this will be a sensational production, and want to do our very best to support it with the resources it needs. Right now, the most valuable one is time. Unfortunately, with large-scale musicals, situations like this frequently occur.”

Preview performances scheduled for Dec. 2 to 6 will go on as planned. Ticket holders for the opening show will be offered seats at later performances. 

For questions call the ATC box office at 520 622 2823.

18 Great Things to in Tucson This Weekend: Nov. 30- Dec. 2

Posted By on Fri, Nov 30, 2018 at 1:00 AM

Reveille Men's Chorus Holiday Show. It's that lovely time of year where local performance groups are putting on holiday performances, just in time to ease all your holiday stress. The local men's chorus production this year is the "Island of Misfit Toys," which tells the story of a group of misfits who learn to accept themselves—and others—for exactly who they are. But it's not just wholesome and heartwarming. With barbershop, pop, opera, holiday and uncategorizable numbers, it's also a show that will leave you thoroughly impressed. 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1. 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1, and Sunday, Dec. 2. Leo Rich Theater, 260 S. Church Ave. $20, or free for youth 23 and under. Details Here.

Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 3. When Sergei Rachmaninoff was 24, his Symphony No. 1 was  critically received, and it sent him into a four-year depression during which the pianist, composer and conductor—who started playing piano at age 4—didn't do much at all. The fact that he went on to compose this gorgeous symphony, one which he himself truly believed was good, is enough to make anyone feel hopeful. This evening at the Tucson Symphony Orchestra also features Khachaturian's Concerto-Rhapsody for Cello, with soloist Nicholas Mariscal, and the world premiere of In the Kingdom of Bells, by Scott Ordway. TSO commissioned the piece from Ordway, who is known for pairing artistic disciplines with humanistic themes. 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30. And 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. Tucson Music Hall, 260 S. Church Ave. $21 to $86. Details Here.

Menace II Society. Part of Lower Arizona's bi-monthly "On the Reel" presentation dedicated to culture, The Screening Room is showing this 1993 drama film. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Menace II Society examines the life of a young black man hoping to escape the town he grew up in for hopes of a better life. Featuring a movie discussion with the audience. 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30. 127 E. Congress St. $7. Details Here.

Sugar Plum Tea 2018. Supporting Ballet Tucson means supporting their annual production of The Nutcracker, which means you definitely want to support Ballet Tucson. And they're making it super fun to do: At this tea, there's live holiday music, a silent auction, delicious treats and characters from The Nutcracker in attendance. You can get some holiday shopping done at their boutique full of gifts and stocking stuffers, and even enjoy a performance by the dancers. Singer and saxophonist Jeff Haskell and singer Katherine Byrnes are providing entertainment, and so is harpist (and graduate of both Julliard and the UA) Christine Vivona. 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1. Marriott University Park Hotel, 880 E. Second St. $75. Details Here.

The Music Man. If you know anything about The Music Man, you know the music man really isn't a music man at all—he's a con artist who rolls into River City, Iowa one summer with a plan to con the townspeople. More specifically, he offers to train young boys in the town to play instruments and form bands, then skips town with the money. He's done it plenty of times before, but this time is different, because there's a cute little boy with a lisp, a barbershop quartet and—as there is in most any musical—a love story. There's also these really great gossip townsfolk called the "Pickalittle Ladies" who are an awful lot like a flock of birds. Don't miss Arizona Theatre Company's production of this show. Sunday, Dec.2 through Sunday, Dec. 30. With shows at either 2 p.m., 7 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Ave. $46 to $76. Details Here

St. Philip's Plaza Farmers Market. This local market took a little hiatus for the summer, but this fall it opened up with more variety, extended hours and live entertainment. Whether you're there to buy handcrafted pottery, local baked goods, a new plant, some fantastic spice blends, artisan jewelry or tonight's dinner, you can now do it to the beat of the live music, and for longer! (Don't worry, admission is still totally free). St. Philip's Plaza is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon anyway, but throw in the opportunity to support local art, get some holiday shopping in and treat yourself to a snack? You'd be a fool to miss it. 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. St. Philip's Plaza, 4280 N. Campbell Ave. Details Here.

Cultivate Tucson: Holiday 2018 Pop-Up Market. Hooray small businesses! Hooray local art! Hooray holiday shopping! Don't miss another chance to buy goods from Tucson's independent designers, makers and shops. It's located in the All Saints Building, which used to be a Catholic school, so it will be hallways full of community interactions, classrooms full of vendors where you can learn all about local artists' methods, and a courtyard with even more vendors. If you had a good experience in Catholic school, relive it at this event. If you had a bad experience in Catholic school, reclaim it at this event. We'd cultiv-hate for you to miss this cultiv-great event. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. 415 S. Sixth Ave. Free. Details Here.

Asteroid Ahoy! It's not just the holiday season in Tucson—it's asteroid arrival season, because the UA-led NASA OSIRIS-REx mission is reaching a major milestone this Monday when it arrives at the asteroid Bennu. To celebrate, the Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium is hosting a whole weekend of festivities, including a presentation at 2 p.m. on Saturday by Bashar Rizk, the guy in charge of the mission's cameras; and a 2 p.m. Sunday talk by Dante Lauretta, the mission's principal investigator. Both presentations will be followed by a screening of the fulldome planetarium show "Asteroid: Mission Extreme." There's also hands-on activities and a board game signing by Lauretta (who designs board games in addition to leading NASA missions). 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, and Sunday, Dec. 2. Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium, 1601 E. University Blvd. $4 GA, free science presentations and regular price for the planetarium shows: $8 adults and $6 kids. Details Here.

La Fiesta de Tumacacori. Do you ever think about how many different cultures have lived in and influenced Southern Arizona? Because it's a lot, and it's actually kind of overwhelming to think about. But at this event, it's fun to think about, because it involves Native American, Mexican and Southwest food, crafts and performances. There's demonstrations on everything from paper flower-making to tortilla-making to O'odham basket weaving! There's piñatas, games and prizes! There are dozens of nonprofit organizations selling food and hand-crafted items! There's nonstop entertainment! And there's a procession Sunday morning. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2. Tumacacori National Historical Park, 1891 E. Frontage Road, Tumacacori. Free.

Proscenium Theatre, 2202 W. Anklam Road. $6, or $5 for students/seniors/military/PCC employees and groups. Details Here.

2018 Jingle Bell Run. Some things in life are unexplainable but true, and this is one of them: It's
easier to run a 5K wearing a Santa hat, with jingle bells tied to your shoes, than it is to run a 5K without being decked out in Christmas gear. It might be that the holiday spirit makes you feel a little bit lighter, or it might be that the rhythm of the jingle bells keeps you going, or it might just be magic. You'll feel even better running this race knowing you're raising funds and awareness to cure arthritis—America's number one cause of disability. 100 percent of your registration fee and fundraising efforts go to the Arthritis Foundation. Registration begins at 8 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. Gene C. Reid Park, 900 S. Randolph Way. $20 to $35. Details Here.

Farmers markets can help you kill at least two birds with one stone, because you can get some of your grocery shopping done while you also pick out holiday treats and gifts from small local businesses that will be well-loved by the ones you love. Plus, the live music and the treats you can buy for yourself on the spot make for a shopping experience that's low on stress and high on fun. 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2.

Fine arts, crafts, jewelry, iron works and photography abound, and you'll be crossing names off of your "to-buy-for" list left and right. Cat Mountain is where it's at mountain. 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2. Cat Mountain Station, 2740 S. Kinney Road. Details Here.

Arizona National Guard Muster. This rally honors not only the service and sacrifice of all Arizona veterans, but the 100-year anniversary of the end of WWI.

Arizona National Guard Citizen-Soldiers and Airmen will muster in formation on the field for review by Mag. Gen. Michael T. McGuire. And there's plenty else to enjoy too, including a car & motorcycle show, the 108th Army Band, tons of vendors and a children's play area. 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2. Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium 2500 E. Ajo Way. Free. Details Here.
