Carnaval 2011

The 4th Annual Tucson Carnaval will be held on Saturday, February 19, 2011, from 1pm – 8pm at Armory Park, 200 S. 6th Avenue.  A free, family-friendly event that celebrates spring, life and Tucson’s music, art, dance and culture.  Tucson Carnaval began in 2008 and is presented by Batucaxé in partnership with Tucson Parks and Recreation, Tucson Children’s Museum, Armory Park Neighborhood Association, the Downtown Tucson Partnership and Many Mouths One Stomach.

The mission of Tucson Carnaval is to create a participatory multi-cultural celebration inviting all members of the community to a parade and festival in celebration of humanity, the planet and new beginnings.

A colorful parade will begin at 2 pm, and a fiery finale at 7:30 pm with Flam Chen.

I am a relatively recent Armory Park resident (2/16) along with my wife, Donna and our little dog Lulu. Donna and I lived over 30 years in Anchorage, Alaska before moving to Arizona. We have been Arizona residents for 16 years before coming here including 12 in Green Valley and four in west Tucson. We love the neighborhood for its history, walkability and interesting residents. Lulu insists on walking every day so you may see us following her around and picking up trash to keep our neighborhood presentable.
