“RAINBOWS ARE COMING TO TUCSON!!! Tues. AUGUST 8th, at 10 to 11 a.m.
SAAF, Historic Fourth Avenue, Speedy Striping, and the City of Tucson have joined together to paint all 4 crosswalks at 4th Avenue & 6th Street rainbow! This is the first rainbow crosswalks project in Arizona. The rainbow crosswalks celebrate inclusivity and diversity in Tucson and shows the world that Tucson, Fourth Avenue, and the City of Tucson are proud to stand with, and celebrate, the LGBTQ community.
Please join us on August 8 at 10am as we dedicate the Rainbow Crosswalks to the community.”

Not an April Fool’s joke, but the popular Spring Street fair on 4th Avenue starts on April 1st this year, to April 3rd.

And check out the 3 new recently installed HeART sculptures along 4th Avenue, which you and your significant other/partner/spouse can place a lock on, forever. Actually someone recently pointed out to me that some are combination locks, so you have a way out if you want to remove it later.
A year ago the Sun Link modern streetcar started operations in Tucson. Here’s their fun way to celebrate this anniversary — from one shopping destination to another, and rides all day are free on July 25, 2015.
By the way, “kahuna” in Hawaiian usually means high priest, if you’re wondering, but it has taken on other meanings in English.
Happy One Year anniversary, Sun Link. It’s luau time.
More info at www.fourthavenue.org. And have you locked your love (with a genuine lock) on one of the 5 new HeART shaped sculptures around 4th Avenue? That Valentine’s event proved to be very popular. Check them out during the 3 day spring street fair.
