The City of Scottsdale has a 60 year birthday this year. Of course Scottsdale has been around longer than that but it has been 60 years since we incorporated. Amazing what Scottsdale is now compared to its wild west, cattle ranching past and it wasn't all that long ago. I personally know people who can remember when almost all of Scottsdales roads where dirt and you had to dodge cattle on the roads!
DC Ranch, Gainey Ranch, McCormick Ranch... where do you think the names come from, the areas were all cattle ranches.
Well, in honor of its 60th birthday the City of Scottsdale is promoting 60 straight days of celebration which will begin on 4/25 and culminate on 6/25 with a big party. Sponsored events will include several art festivals, cowboy history and frontier days, a farmers market, a film/video festival and a 5K run just to name a few. And of course on June 25th the Big Scottsdale birthday bash.
Log onto Scottsdaleaz.gov for a list of all the events... hope to see ya there.
