August Activities Move Inside Where It’s Cool!


#1 4 peaks morning 008

“How glorious a greeting the Sun gives the Mountains. – John Muir.

August in Arizona is known for its chaotic weather, including our famous dust-laden “Haboob” storms that roll across the Valley. But every morning and evening of the monsoon Fountain Hills is blessed with indescribably spectacular skies.


When we are fortunate enough to have an afternoon shower, our evenings cool down a bit, and Fall seems closer than three months away. Fountain Hills kids start school August 8, so we’ll want to be sure to watch them, just in case they forget they are sharing the road with us!

And please remember to patronize our area businesses in August—shopping local helps keep the variety and convenience of our unique retail and dining options prosperous and successful. Your friends at Sonoran Lifestyle Real Estate invite you to check in to our Blog each month for information on many interesting activities going on in and around the Fountain Hills area.

#12 Mini FountainHow about winning Free Pizza for a year from Little Caesars? Or a week in Mexico at one of the luxurious Vidanta Resorts? (The Mayan Palace in Rocky Point is one of their properties, as it the gigantic Grand Mayan in Cancun). Maybe an interior design refresher from Barbara Kaplan of Sonoran Lifestyle Real Estate—while munching $50 of chocolates from Chocofin?

You’re going to find things you didn’t even know you needed at the most amazing summer fundraiser of the season!

The River of Time Museum’s Annual Spaghetti Dinner is one of Fountain Hills most enjoyable Fundraising events. But this year, the Dinner committee has really “kicked it up a notch!”   Tommy Holloway will entertain us while people are selecting items from the silent auction and during dinner!  More than 50 local businesses have donated goods and services, and a complete table for 8 is only $100!

Advance tickets are $15 for one person or $25 for two and can be purchased at Gridley’s, Sami’s, Kay Kinder’s Fountain Fashions, the FH Times or at the River of Time Museum between 10:00 to 2:00, Tuesday through Saturday.  Cost is $20 per person the night of the event.

Summerland Tour 2016 at Fort McDowell Casino

Named one of the Ten best summer Package Tours by Rolling Stone!

#13 -summerland-tour-The 2016 edition features Sugar Ray, Everclear, Lit and Sponge.

Sugar Ray was one of the quintessential rock bands of the 90’s. Musical styles – from dancehall to disco, punk to pure pop – are mixed and matched, resulting in a celebratory, swaggering collection that is distinctively and delightfully Sugar Ray.

Everclear is heavier, darker and more aggressive than ever. And frontman Art Alexakis has never been happier. As familiar as the sound of a jet engine and as visceral as a ride on a speeding motorcycle.

Lit, best known for their hit song “My Own Worst Enemy”, is prepared to both re-excite their longtime fans and win over new ones. Lit incorporates elements of punk, pop, grunge, heavy metal, and alternative.

Sponge is one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters, gaining international notoriety with their debut album “Rotting Piñata”. With hits like “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles),” Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and MTV. Tickets Starting at $35 | Buy Tickets > 

Doors Open 6PM, Show Starts 7PM | This Is an Outdoor Event.

Play It Again Sam

April #2play-it-again-samWoody Allen’s career as a playwright and later actor/director accelerated with the success of his 1968 play, “Play it again Sam.” Fountain Hills Mainstage Theater’s April offering is a “Hilarious… a cheerful romp. Not only are Mr. Allen’s jokes and their follow ups, asides and twists audaciously brilliant, but he has a great sense of character.” – The New York Times

Nominated for 4 Tony awards, the play follows newly divorced playwright Allan Felix who has this thing about Humphrey Bogart. If only he had some of Bogart’s technique… Bookish and insecure with women, Allan’s hero, Bogey comes to the rescue, with a fantastic bevy of beauties played out in hilarious fantasy

sequences. Fixed up by friends with gorgeous women, he’s so awkward that even the mythical Bogey’s patience is tried.

Fountain Hills Youth Theater Spring Production

Thirteen-year-old Edwina Spoonapple has very talented siblings. But because of this, she thinks that she isn’t special or talented. Yet Edwina has many talents including leadership, singing and advising, and she combines all of them by directing musicals out of her garage.

The topic of these musicals is letters written to her by neighborhood kids who need advice. One of the main themes of Dear Edwina is Edwina’s desire to be in the “Advice-a-palooza” festival because she feels it will prove that she is as talented as her siblings.

River of Time Museum Re-Opening Kicks off “Stroll in the Glow” Afternoon


Saturday, December 5, 2015;  11-4 p.m.

#1 Fountain ModelThe staff and volunteers at the River of Time Museum have been very very busy this fall.  The fruit of their labor are new interactive exhibits highlighting the impact of water on the growth and development of the Valley of the Sun.

The new scale model of our namesake “Fountain Hills” fountain shows how the “world’s tallest fountain” drew adventuresome visitors to this amazing desert enclave.  The McCulloch Corporation (known in the 70’s more for their chain saws than land development), created the Fountain to attract buyers to look at land in the lush Sonoran foothills.

#2 Visiting new ExhibitOther new exhibits show how the Central Arizona Project (CAP) became the lifeline for Arizona desert dwellers.  The exhibition demonstrates how the Central Arizona Project water makes its way from mountain lakes to sustain the homes and agriculture across central Arizona.

A special open house and tour of the Museum will take place on Saturday, December 5, from 11-4 p.m.  Special pricing for Family memberships will be available for $25, which also includes free admission to 5 additional historical museums around Arizona!  A family membership lets you host visitors as well, giving them a bit of historical perspective of the lush area that has become Fountain Hills.

The River Front Store will be stocked with interesting historical books and gift items, and as always, there is no sales tax on items purchased to benefit the operating overhead of the L Alan Cruikshank River of Time Museum programming.

12901 N. La Montana Blvd, Fountain Hills, AZ 85268
