Things to Do in Arizona this Spring
Parada del Sol Parade and Trail’s End Festival
The 70th annual Parada del Sol Parade and Trail’s End Festival is headed to Old Town Scottsdale on February 3rd.
The event celebrates the West and generally brings in over 30,000 people. You can enjoy the day focusing on Western history and live music. Don't forget to do a little shopping while you're there.
Nearly 150 entries will march in the parade down Scottsdale Road. After the parade, the Trail’s End Festival turns Old Town into a block party with live music, food, and a ton of family-friendly activities.
Partial Solar Eclipse
Arizona won't be in the path of complete totality this year, but you'll be able to catch the partial solar eclipse on March 24th.
The best time to see the eclipse in Arizona will be around 10:30 am. Be sure to use proper eye protection or a pinhole projector to view the eclipse safely.
Cactus League Spring Training
You may not get to catch your favorite baseball team during the regular season, but Arizona baseball fans make Cactus League Spring Training an annual event.
Several Major League Baseball teams train across the metropolitan Phoenix area. On deck for the 2024 season, fifteen teams will play over two hundred games. You can catch the teams around Surprise, Goodyear, Mesa, Scottsdale, and Tempe.
It's fun to catch the game, interact with your favorite players, get autographs, and bask in the beautiful weather. Spring League training runs from February 23rd through March 27th.
