The free, outdoor festival occurs twice a year. It features holiday shopping ideas and entertainment for all ages.

Oro Valley Arts in the Park offers musical performances, kids' activities, tasty food and artwork. The public can view pastels, oil paintings, watercolors, sculpture, mixed-media, photography, ceramics, jewelry and more.

Attendees can sip on treats like smoothies, peppermint stick lemons and oranges or bite into brats and pretzel dogs, while listening to upbeat music, such as live bluegrass, jazz and acoustic guitar music.

Children can participate in the festival through watching arts and crafts demonstrations, getting their face painted and playing on inflatable jump lands.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
