Anza Days at Tubac Presidio 

This year's Anza Days celebration has been re-envisioned to reflect more historical accuracy of this important event in Tubac's history, when Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza made the 1775 overland expedition from Tubac to the Pacific. The costumed cavalry drill at 8:00 am offers some great photo opportunities to record this historic event. "It begins in the cool of the morning at the Tubac Presidio at 8 am with period costumed riders executing cavalry drills. On the command of, "Vayan subiendo", the Anza riders will assemble along with a host of imaginary settlers and live stock, and proceed to the steps of St. Ann's Church (the site of Tubac's original church, Santa Gertrudis). There they will receive a blessing for the journey and head north with the first day objective of La Canoa. Subsequently, from 10 am to noon at the Presidio we will unveil our children's Anza Discovery Program with costumes, activities, props, ponies and superb photo ops.

Meet at the Camera Club at 6:45AM for carpooling, and depart at 7AM. Carol Gautsch will be the trip leader. For questions call Carol at 520-347-4917 home, or 406-850-2742 cell, bratcat08@gmail.com.
