5 fun events happening around the Phoenix area this weekend | April 1

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – The temperatures are continuing to heat up this weekend but it’s still the calm before the real Arizona heat that is just weeks away. To get out there and do something fun this weekend, here are a few things happening around the Valley to check out.

1. Kilt Chaser Fun Run

Participate in this year’s Kilt Chaser 1 Mile Fun Run with Four Peaks Brewery and FABRIC Tempe. The run is set up to celebrate Four Peaks’ 25th Anniversary and to bring awareness to how denim impacts the environment. First 300 runners will be able to compete for a medal. Prizes will also be awarded for other fun categories as well.

“This year, we saw a great opportunity to educate the public about the environmental impact of denim,” Four Peaks’ Senior Brand Manager Cristina Polli said. “Many people don’t realize that the production of jeans and the dyes used to create them are polluting our waterways. There’s also a lot of waste. One pair of jeans could require up to eight gallons of water, which is the equivalent of three days of water usage for an average household.”

When: Saturday at 10:30 am
