Phoenix Convention Center 2013

Phoenix’s cold snap is finally breaking, and just in time for the weekend, too. With the highs expected to be in the 70s, our list of things to do around Phoenix this weekend should help you make the most of the warm weather while it’s here! And, since Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we also included an event that’s taking place on Monday, in case you have the day off of work or school. Whether you have the day off or not, though, let’s all remember what an important man King was to the civil rights movement and to our country.
