Tucson, AZ, March 5, 2015-Tucson, AZ-March 14th will see 2nd Saturdays return to regular hours.  The event starts at 5pm and runs until approximately 10:30pm with the MIX/fm Scott Street Stage programmed from 6pm-10:30pm.   There is always something for everyone to keep you entertained the entire event.   2nd Saturdays is a family friendly, urban street festival that has food to sample and vendors to shop from. But it’s the magic of street performers that capture you as you stroll Congress St. from Toole Ave. to Church Ave. Some of the downtown businesses will offer specials or may schedule own entertainment. There is fun for all ages. Many of the vendors and sponsors have drawings during the evening.  Don’t miss the Downtown scene along Sun Link’s Downtown route. Hop on at any stop along the Sun Link corridor to be part of 2nd Saturdays March 14th. 
Win a 50th Anniversary Edition of a 2015 Ford Mustang: The car up for grabs is a rare 2015 Ford Mustang. Exactly 1,964 of the cars were made in recognition of the Mustang’s fiftieth anniversary.  2nd Saturdays is participating in the 50th Anniversary Edition of a 2015 Ford Mustang Raffle.  Everyone purchasing a raffle ticket from the booth at the festival gets a chance to win this Mustang and what a car it is!
