Tres Rios Festival A Big Hit With Kids

The Tres Rios Nature and Earth Festival is more than an opportunity for adults to celebrate the rich heritage of the Gila, Salt and Agua Fria rivers. It is an outdoor wonderland for the kids. A perfect opportunity to get them out of the house and into the outdoors.
And how can you miss with such great opportunities on tap during the two-day event set for March 6-7 along the Gila River south of a Avondale near Phoenix International Raceway. Think about paddling a canoe, hiking, watching birds, free fishing and a great Kid's Zone where they can take a short nature trail, view wildlife artifacts, make crafts and do other fun stuff.
And don't forget about some great food, so bring an appetite, and enjoy some real traditional bluegrass music performed by the popular Back Porch Bandits.
Courtney Bourland of Goodyear is one satisfied customer. Here is what she said in an unsolicited email:
"I just want to give a huge thank you to all the people that put on the Tres Rios Nature and Earth Festival! My sons, ages 5 and 8, had a blast. They fished, made walking sticks, molded animal footprints, went on a scavenger hunt, bird watched, etc. They even enjoyed looking at the booths and talking to the very informative people manning the booths. Thank you for making this event free and fun!"
Thank you, Courtney. Spread the word and we'll see all of you on March 6-7.
