Photo by Laurie FordJuly is time for one of Glenwood's unique annual events, the Doo Dah Parade on July 4th. It's like stepping back in time. The day's celebrations include: the Street Market, a horseshoe tournament, the parade, music and dancing and is topped off by fireworks.

The 14th Annual Gila River Festival will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Wild and Scenic Rivers in the United States. Presented by the Gila Conservation Coalition, the four-day festival will feature dynamic presentations and hands-on activities designed to foster a deeper intimacy with the Gila River, New Mexico's last wild river and its watershed, including river outings, expert-led hikes and field trips, presentations, and much more.

Rivers run through us – our hearts, our lives, our nation's history. In 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. As our nation matures, we have come to recognize the value of rivers and our responsibility to protect them. Although 12,000 river miles are now protected under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, this represents less than one quarter of one percent of total river miles in the US. At the 14th annual Gila River Festival we will celebrate this momentous legislation by exploring its roots, surveying the effects it has had, and pondering the future of the American river system as a whole.
