MARICOPA — In most cities, the annual State of the City address by the mayor can be a mundane, even boring event. In Maricopa, however, it’s become something to behold in recent years.
Known for being one to make a big entrance, Mayor Christian Price outdoes himself every year by putting on an even bigger spectacle, and 2020 was no different. Despite the ongoing pandemic, the city was determined to host a safe event while also living up to their usual entertainment standards.
This year’s theme was “Maricopa is looking Up!” and was centered around the Disney movie “Up.” Guests were greeted by a deluge of color as they entered Copper Sky Regional Park on Wednesday night. Clusters of balloons surrounded the space while three large hot-air balloons dotted the background, lighting the night sky with their fiery glow.
