One of Tucson’s most historic mile-long stretches will have its day in the sun tomorrow, and with a forecast of just over 80 degrees, the timing couldn’t be better.

The Historic Sunshine Mile Festival, honoring the strip of Broadway Boulevard highly populated with local businesses between Campbell Avenue and Country Club, kicks off tomorrow at noon with an appearance from Ward 6 Council Member Steve Kozachik as he unveils a mural at 2610 E. Broadway Blvd. Demion Clinco, the president of the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation Board, will also speak at the event, while the Tucson Barbershop Experience Men's Chorus and a trumpet soloist from Catalina Foothills Band are scheduled to perform.
