Chow down and celebrate this Fourth of July: 2019 Edition

Plenty of fun happening around Tucson this Independence Day.

It’s that time of year to let freedom ring.

To some, that means lighting several fireworks into the night sky, firing up the barbecue grill in someone’s backyard, and enjoying good times with family and friends. However, others prefer to get out and stuff their faces with local cuisine and craft beer.

A few places in the city are offering fun for adults, a family-friendly entertainment, special offers on meals, and perfect spots to enjoy the fireworks that are set to blast off from the top of Sentinel Peak.

Check out these local spots to celebrate Fourth of July in Tucson.
