Prescott Valley is commemorating Arizona's Centennial through the 33rd annual Prescott Valley Days, "Happy Birthday Arizona, a Centennial Celebration," June 16-19.

Starting with the Frazier Shows carnival Thursday night, continuing Friday at noon with an Arts and Crafts Show and PV Idol finals in the evening, Saturday's balloon launch, pancake breakfast, parade, contests, demonstrations and entertainment, and culminating Sunday with another balloon launch and more, the event offers something for everyone in the community.

Activities take place in and around Tim's Toyota Center in the Town Center, except for the parade

Grand Marshal Marshall Trimble, Arizona's Official Historian, will lead the parade from the corner of Yavapai and Robert Roads to Mt. Valley Park starting at 9 a.m.

The Prescott Valley Early Bird Lions sponsor the parade, and KDDL 94.3 FM will broadcast live.

A motorcycle show is scheduled for Saturday, as well as two tractor shows and pulls, and radio controlled aerobatic demonstrations. The latter two activities continue Sunday, as does the carnival.

Inside Tim's Toyota Center, entertainment begins at noon on Saturday with Astarte and Zarabe Dance Troop, followed by the Desert Rose Dancers, Aloha Hapa Keikis, Casa Belles, Ms. Sue's Dancers, and Sol de Mexico.

The evening's outdoor musical entertainment opens with Sky Daddy and the Pop Rocks, and then headliner Little Larry and the Drive.
