PHOENIX — Celebrate Mesa returns for a free family-friendly party at Pioneer Park in what will Celebrate Earth Day with live music and activities for all ages on April 9.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the event will take place at 526 East Main Street at Pioneer Park which will feature close to 30 exhibitors.

Those who attend Celebrate Mesa can learn about gardening and tree care, as well as composting, recycling, water conservation and more.

The annual event will include new activities such as Deb’s Dragons Interactive Wildlife Encounter with snakes, lizards along with other reptiles.

Live music will also be performed at Celebrate Mesa, with two performances from youth mariachi bands “Mariachi Sones del Desierto” and “Mariachi Juvenil.”

The event is a kid’s wonderland with a number of activities to take part in throughout the day.

Celebrate Mesa will have a petting zoo, a bounce house, carnival rides and games, a rock wall, painting classes and archery tag.

A handful of food trucks will be at Pioneer Park offering a variety of cuisine options for those who attend.

Admission and parking to the event are free to the public, however, for those interested in any carnival rides there is a $5 unlimited access fee.
