The end of March 2014 ushers in another Anthem Days’ celebration for the community of Anthem, Arizona and the surrounding NW Phoenix Valley. This year marks the 15th Anthem Days event and is packed with all the typical fun and revelry that those of you who have been to one before have come to expect. One could argue that Anthem Days is Anthem’s signature festival with it being the longest running annual event that it celebrates. The fun begins on Saturday, March 29 from 10:00AM – 4:00PM and repeats on Sunday, March 30 at the same times.
This two-day event has a plethora of family-friendly activities scheduled:
- local business expo
- glass blowing demonstration
- carnival with vending and rides
- a kids’ zone with inflatables and bounce houses
- food court with a beer garden
- craft vendors
- the Eggstravaganza egg hunt (sponsored this year by CCV Anthem)
- live musical entertainment
- salsa making contest
- $10,000 half-court shot contest (sponsored by OSR Physical Therapy)
- Emma’s 5K/10K runs
- Anthem Neighborhood Watch 911 Simulator and Child Fingerprinting
- Daisy Mountain Fire Department Demonstrations
There are several other events that take place both days such as World War II airplane flyovers. For those that are not as familiar with all the businesses Anthem has to offer, many of them have booths set up where you can meet up and discuss what they have to offer all on the same area on the grass. There really is no better way to see several vendors all in one day while you merely walk around the fields of Anthem’s community park! Many of you reading this are probably not used to seeing such lush green rye grass this time of year. Well, come on our to Anthem Days and experience for yourselves how great our little city is here in NW Phoenix. This festival is open to everyone. Admission and parking are both free.
Come on out and meet new friends, say “hi” to old friends, and just get reacquainted with why you love the community of Anthem, AZ. Oh, and if you find that you want to learn more about our community and how you, too, can find a house to call “home” in Anthem Parkside or Anthem Country Club, we can probably help you out with that, too! Cheers!
