Sierra Vista is an active community where there is always something going on to provide family-fun entertainment as well as plenty of opportunities to mingle and socialize with your neighbors. Throughout the summer season, the Sierra Vista Chamber hosts and sponsors some great events to attend without breaking your budget. Here, we’ll highlight some of the best events to check out this summer as you settle into your new Southern Arizona home.
