Fun free things to do this weekend in Arizona for everyone

If you missed the Academy Award winning animation, Coco, now is your chance to see it with friends and family this Friday, May 4th in Chandler at Tumbleweed Park!

The greatest thing is that it’s FREE for the whole family!

The fun starts at 6:30 p.m with Folklorico Dance. Fully costumed dancers will perform and teach guests the traditional Spanish dance.

Kids have many other activites to do as well relating to the movie like building their own tambourine and designing their own flower pot while planting marigold seeds in it to watch grow at home. According to tradition, bright yellow and orange marigolds help the departed find their way back home. The spirits are welcomed by the marigolds’ strong scent.

Best of all, you can make your very own sugar skull to take home.
