FIRST ANNUAL OTA "RUN FOR THE ROSES"
Our first annual spring event, "Run for the Roses Cottonwood Bootleg Derby", will take place on May 2nd and 3rd, 2014 on Main Street in the Historic District of Old Town Cottonwood. This year's theme is a Cottonwood take on the Kentucky Derby.
May 2nd is the Bootlegger's Ball, featuring The Sammy Davis Band. The ball will be held at the Civic Center, beginning at 7:00pm. The Bootlegger's Ball will kick off the Run for the Roses Cottonwood Bootleg Derby and create enthusiasm for the event the following day.
On May 3rd the Run for the Roses Cottonwood Bootleg Derby will feature live music, a fine art & vintage fair, along with a horseshoe tournament, hosted by the Cornville Cartel (as seen on Arizona Highways). The highlight of our event is the sawhorse race, sponsored and decorated by local merchants and businesses.
The mission of the event is to draw tourism and community awareness and unity. We are proud to have selected "Connections", a horse therapy organization for the mentally challenged, as our charitable beneficiary.
We know our community businesses have as their mission, a desire to give back locally and we greatly appreciate their continued support.
If your organization or company would like to participate in the Run for the Roses Cottonwood Bootleg Derby, please contact: Cindi Battisti at email@example.com or 928-634-0419-office or 602-430-6740-cell.
Cottonwood is "A Culinary Hot Spot"!
Great article in the Arizona Republic
Roger Naylor, a local travel and entertainment writer, has written an article talking about dining in Cottonwood featuring several local restaurants becoming known for their fine fare.
"Cottonwood has grown into a destination for wine lovers. Tasting rooms line Main Street in Old Town, housed in Prohibition-era buildings and fronted by covered sidewalks. So it’s not surprising that terrific restaurants have sprung up as well."
