Start Our State is also sponsoring Celebrate Free Baja Arizona Day! on Cinco de Mayo (that's May 5th for Tom Horne) at the Shanty, 401 E. 9th Street (at 4th Avenue), from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Food will be provided, but you'll have to pay for your own drinks. The date was chosen by the Pima County Board of Supervisors in 1987. Free Baja Arizona Day is officially recognized by our County on May 5. We thought it appropriate to celebrate/observe the date this year, considering our movement and its history.
