...the adorable desert quail!
Over the last five years, the Festival has featured some of the most distinctive creatures of the Sonoran desert:
In 2009... we started out in style with the iconic gila monster.
In 2010... we flew high like a hummingbird.
In 2011... we stretched our limbs as a tarantula.
In 2012... we leaped ahead as a frog.
In 2013... we further transformed like a butterfly.
Now for the 2014 Festival, we're celebrating literacy and books as a family affair with the desert quail and her delightful chicks. What is your favorite festival creature so far? Visit our Facebook page and share your vote today!
