It's Still Fair Weather

The Arizona State Fair has hit its halfway-ish point, so you’ll want to post up there while the gettin’s good (and it’s always super good over in those parts this time of year).

On Thursday, October 28, learn and/or be reminded of the five Cs (which is totally the quintessential Arizona thing) while peeping the Arizona 5C Sand Sculpture, a 300-ton, thirty-foot tall sculpture made out of tiny particles. Also on that day, you can actually yell “Play some Skynyrd!” and only look like half a jackass because Lynyrd Skynyrd is posting up at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum at 7 p.m.

Friday, October 29, sample some brewskis at the Anheuser-Busch Brew House before the Snoop Dogg performance, while Saturday, October 30, gets all heavy with Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch. Then, on Sunday, October 31, the Arizona Derby Dames All-Girl Roller Derby will be in the banked-track house for an unabated match.
