Tres Rios Fest this weekend

Don’t have a behind-the-hike this weekend, but I did finish my taxes. Yes- it was a trade off.

I DO have a hike recommendation this week- or rather an acitvity recommendation – though I’m pretty sure it involves a fair amount of walking around in the sunshine.

Straight from the press release:

Enjoy the outdoors at the Tres Rios Nature Festival this weekend


March 8, 2012



The popular Tres Rios Nature and Earth Festival returns to Estrella Mountain Regional Park this Saturday and Sunday, March 10-11.

The family-friendly festival focuses on the rich diversity of wildlife, habitat, history and culture of the Gila River area in the West Valley. Attendees will be able to see live wildlife up close, go canoeing, try archery, fish, view local birds, hike, and learn about recycling and green living.

The festival will include a special area for children with hands-on activities centered around nature and the outdoors. There will also be a “recycling fashion show,” live entertainment and numerous other features.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Estrella Mountain Regional Park is located at 14805 W. Vineyard, Goodyear, Ariz., 5.5 miles south of Interstate 10 off of Estrella Parkway. Signs will provide visitors with further directions. Admission to the festival is free, although a $3 per vehicle park entrance fee will be charged by the park. Some children’s rides will also require a small fee.

For more information, visit or call the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce at (623) 932-2260.
