Artwork: Allie Carl/Axios

If there’s one thing about me, it’s that I’m obsessed with small town fairs, festivals and parades. Yes, I watched too much “Gilmore Girls” when I was younger.

Fortunately for me: Small town in Arizona on 4th of July weekend is pretty much a mecca for community pride events

For this week function of beating the heat, I’ve compiled some of these events in parts of the state that also have more pleasant summer temperatures than the Valley.
