Daisy Mountain and Black Canyon City Veterans Parades:
Save the date - more details will follow.
Daisy Mountain Veterans Parade to be held on November 4, 2017, at 10 a.m. in Anthem, Arizona. Perch Base will tow the USS Phoenix float in the parade as in previous years. This year’s parade will honor Women Veterans. The parade is free and open to the public.
Staging area is in the Cross of Christ Church parking lot.

Access to the staging area will not be permitted after about 8:30 AM.
Assuming you are traveling north on I-17 from Phoenix, you can access the staging area by taking the Daisy Mountain Road exit (Exit # 227) and turning right at the end of the exit ramp. Take the first left turn bay in about 0.3 mile into the Circle K. There is parking behind the Circle K.
This link to last year's official parade map shows additional parking locations if you arrive late, or parking is full, but you will have to walk farther to the staging area.
Here's some pictures from last year's Anthem/Daisy Mountain veterans' parade.
After Anthem, we expect to go up to Black Canyon City (not yet confirmed) for their parade.
The 3:00 PM start time in Black Canyon City gives us time to stop at the Rock Springs Cafe for pie on the way.
35769 Old Black Canyon Hwy, Black Canyon City, AZ 85324
(Left-click address, above, for a Google map to Rock Springs Cafe.)
Assuming you are headed north on I-17, take the exit ramp 242 (Rock Springs/Black Canyon City.) At the end of the ramp (Velda Rose Road,) turn left and cross over I-17 and turn left (south) on the Old Black Canyon Hwy. The Rock Springs Cafe is 0.4 miles on the right.
To get to the staging area from the Rock Springs Cafe, go back (left) on the Old Black Canyon Hwy for 0.9 miles (you will go past Velda Rose Road this time) to the next right, which is Oasis Road. Turn right onto Oasis Road which is the staging area.
