The Epic Outdoor Food Fest In Arizona You Simply Cannot Miss
One of my favorite parts of the holidays? The abundance of food which is almost always accompanied by loved ones and smiling faces (with the exception of a surly relative or two). If the Christmas season isn’t complete without a serving or five of some mouthwatering tamales, then you’re going to love this epic food festival coming up later this month!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
