A parade of costumes will begin at 4:45 p.m. Participants are encouraged to arrive no later than 4:30 p.m. to line up. New this year is our Community Stage where local talent will perform musical acts, martial arts and other live performances.  Our Main Stage will rock it out with KVIT-FM “The Goldmine” while tossing out free t-shirts, cool raffle prizes plus a $100 grand prize gift card to Superstition Springs Mall.  Take photos of yourself at our event on Instagram and tag it with #CelebrateMesa2013 to win a free raffle prize.
