    Posted Under: Entertainment & Nightlife in Phoenix, In My Neighborhood in Phoenix  |  January 31, 2014 5:14 PM  |  305 views  |  No comments
    George Strait, county music icon, is bringing his farewell tour to the Valley next week. The Cowboy Rides Away Tour will be at the US Airways Center in Phoenix on Friday February 7.

    Although this is likely to be a very emotional concert for the fans of the 44-time-chart-topping superstar of country music, big-name guests have popped up at other tour stops to help wish George a fond farewell. Martina McBride will be joining George on the stage in Phoenix.

  • Fear Farm in Phoenix AZ

    Posted Under: Entertainment & Nightlife in Phoenix, In My Neighborhood in Phoenix  |  October 17, 2013 6:32 PM  |  218 views  |  No comments

    Halloween is just around the corner, and if you are looking for a fright fest then look no further than the Fear Farm on 99th Ave just north of McDowell. Mild-mannered sports and concert venue during the rest of the year, come summer the corn starts growing in preparation for the six acre corn maze that promises twists and turns and plenty of confusion for the directionally-challenged.

    But of course, most people trek to Fear Farm for the frightfully fun haunted attractions. Chainsaw-wielding murderers, research gone horribly wrong and terrifying clowns (are there any other kind?) are just a few of the scares awaiting visitors.

  • Arizona State Fair Is In Town!

    Posted Under: Quality of Life in Phoenix, Entertainment & Nightlife in Phoenix, In My Neighborhood in Phoenix  |  October 11, 2013 3:56 PM  |  291 views  |  No comments
    The reward for surviving the incredibly hot and often humid Arizona summers is the Arizona State Fair, which opens Friday October 10. This grand event held at the state fairgrounds is a massive combination of music, fun and food. Country superstar Trace Adkins is scheduled to perform, as are  classic rockers Cheap Trick and blues rockers ZZ Top, just to name a few.

    Fair foodies will still find the old favorites such as candy apples and popcorn, but fans of all that is fried will find a literal cornucopia and treats to feast on, such as deep fried macaroni and cheese and deep fried pineapple upside down cake, just to name a few.

    There will be plenty of reason to walk off at least some of those fair food calories. The livestock and home art displays are always interesting to browse, but fairgoers will also be treated to unique performing acts such as Secret Circus and Tyzen the Master Hypnotist.

    Although admission is published at $10, there are a myriad of discounts available.  Visit ToniaVickery.com for more information.

  • Oktoberfest in Litchfield Park AZ

    Posted Under: Entertainment & Nightlife in Litchfield Park, Parks & Recreation in Litchfield Park, In My Neighborhood in Litchfield Park  |  September 26, 2013 3:31 PM  |  616 views  |  No comments

    Most people think of Oktoberfest as a celebration of beer, but did you know it actually was started as a wedding celebration? In 1810 Bavarian Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese, and the citizens were invited to join the festivities. The celebration concluded with horse races, which were so popular that they were made a regular event.

    In subsequent years, agricultural exhibits were added, followed by food and beverage vendors and carnival rides. And thus was born Oktoberfest as we know it.

    The Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, Germany is considered one of the largest (if not THE largest) festival in the world. However, if you can't make it to Munich this year, Litchfield Park AZ is holding their Oktoberfest celebration this Saturday September 28 on the front lawn of the Wigwam.

    Visitors can enjoy live music and authentic German treats such as knackwurst, pretzels and more (including, of course, beer!) There will be plenty of fun activities such as games, activities, prizes and more.

  • Night Golf at Palo Verde Municipal Golf Course

    Posted Under: Entertainment & Nightlife in Phoenix, Parks & Recreation in Phoenix  |  August 23, 2013 4:25 PM  |  563 views  |  No comments

    Golf is probably as close to the official sport of the Valley of the Sun as any sport can get. We have awesome weather most of the year for that sport often referred to as “a perfectly lovely walk spoiled by a little ball”, but our summer heat can prove to be brutal to even the most dedicated golf enthusiast.

    The Palo Verde Municipal Golf Course has solved this dilemma in a fun and unique way. This Saturday evening (August 24), the evening of Friday, September 20thand the evening of Saturday, October 26, they are hosting night golf tournaments. Participants will be given glow in the dark golf balls and necklaces, and glowsticks line the fairways.
