The Sunnyslope Historical Society hosts its annual Palo Verde Festival, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Saturday, April 12, at the Sunnyslope Historical Society Museum, 737 E. Hatcher Road.

The program, which takes place in the adjacent courtyard of palo verde trees, will feature Valley singer, songwriter and guitarist, Meagan Gipson. Gipson’s great, great grandparents, William and Ada Bass, were guides over the dusty trails leading down the Grand Canyon in the late 1800s. Gipson has put together accounts from Ada’s diary, and has tied this information into her stories and songs.

The presentation is free. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call 602-331-3150.
