If you have not purchased your tickets to the Fourth Annual Superior Chamber of Commerce Home and Building Tour you need to hurry and purchase them: presale tickets are only available through Friday.
Pre sale tickets are $8 and are available at the Copper Gecko and the Chamber of Commerce office located in the Caboose Visitor Center at the US 60 Park. Tickets will be $10 on the day of the event. Ticket includes admission to the six homes and two buildings on the tour. Those purchasing a ticket will also receive a goody bag with discounts to local merchants as well as a coupon for two for one admission to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, that alone is a $7.50 value.
The chamber is hosting other events as part of the home tour but you won’t need a ticket to visit: “Art in the Park” at the Besich Park, the antique show at the Magma Club, or history lectures with Jack San Felice and Sam Lowe at the Superior Senior Center. San Felice will be speaking about silver mining in the Old West at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. Lowe will be speaking about Arizona Outlaws and other curiosities at 1 p.m. both days. The Mata Ortiz potters from Mexico will once again be firing pottery at the Besich Park both days at noon and three o’clock. They will be displaying and selling their pottery at 350 Main Street. The Copper Corridor Mobile Visitor Center will also be on display during the event.
In addition to all of those great activities and attractions you can also hear live music being played throughout the day at Besich Park and the Magma Club, learn how to make and play a digeradoo and taste chocolate at Porters Café with Mary Josephs the “Chocolate Lady.”
The Home and Building Tour, Art and Antique show along with all the other scheduled events will be held this weekend Saturday, Jan. 28, and Sunday, Jan. 29. Saturday the self guided tours and exhibits run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
