Here in Quartzsite, the Arizona Centennial Kickoff includes a full weekend of events and fun for the whole family.
Starting off on Friday, continuing thru Sat. Feb. 11 & 12 is the Quilt Show at the Senior Center. A Special Centennial Quilt, made by local quilters will be on display. The quilt will be raffled during the Centennial year.
Sat. Feb. 12th is our famous ATV Parade sponsored by Willpower, Inc. Centennial Events will take place at the Park following the parade. Skyhawk will provide the entertainment. Quartzsite Flyers RC Club will present a wonderful display of RC aircraft and history at the field just north of the park. The first Photo Scavenger Hunt Contest will begin with “Prickly Pete”presented by Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite. Prickly Pete will be there in person too! Don’t want to miss that! The Centennial Committee will open the Hoosegaw for fundraising. The first four “prisoners” will be jailed and they’re going to need some help to get bailed out! The Quartzsite Art Guild will unveil the first two pieces of artwork which will be displayed throughout town for the year. Each month another piece will be added to the collection until the Finale in February 2012! There’ll be lots more fun for the whole family on Saturday, February 12th after the ATV Parade!
Sunday, Feb. 13th the Arizona Sunriders ATV Club will host guided rides into the desert for beginners, intermediate and advanced riders. Interested folks can sign up at the park after the parade on Saturday.
