With a legendary football rivalry and a downtown festival, Globe is the place to be this weekend. The air has cooled enough to require a sweater. The sun is warm and gentle rather than hot and blistering. We welcome the holiday season as we welcome you to join us for some fun this week in Globe, Arizona.
Pickle Barrel Trading Post
The Pickle Barrel is open every day except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day & Easter Sunday. The hours are 10am to 5:45pm Monday through Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sundays. Walk the aisles of this old post and beam style building to find your own piece of Arizona treasure. From the parking lot you will notice the large array of outside sculptures and statues. As you enter you will dive deep into the world of Native Americans and Pioneers who frequented the Southwest in the past. With its large selection and variety the Pickle Barrel Trading Post has become one of the staples of the local antique market.
Leonard Paul’s Pizza
Every community has their own “best pizza in the world” spot. Leonard Paul’s is that place in Globe-Miami. You can call ahead and order for pickup, dine in or buy it one slice at a time. Leonard Paul’s is a small family business with a simple menu and a classic taste.
Globe Tigers host the Miami Vandals
The Globe-Miami football game is this Friday, October 30th at Harbison Field in Globe. Miami presents the better record at 7-2 but Globe has walked away with the Copper Kettle more times than not in recent history. The game begins at 7pm. Admission is paid at the gate and there will be concessions supporting the football clubs for both teams. It is guaranteed to be a packed house so come early for a good seat.
Downtown Globe Halloween Festival
Every year Globe’s Main Street Program hosts a Halloween Festival on Broad Street downtown. The local business owners and employees sit outside their doors with buckets of candy to hand out to the kids as they walk the sidewalks of downtown filling their treat bags. Most people show up about 5:30pm and walk up one side of Broad Street and down the other with their families in full costume. This proves as a nice alternative to door to door trick or treating as our community is so spread out. After the candy collection their are several other events to attend such as the Haunted Jail Tour, Pumpkin Rolling, Costume Contest and more.
Smack dab in the middle of Downtown Globe you will find Hollis Cinema 4. The theater is open every day and provides a high quality, up to date movie experience. The old Hollis Theater was a landmark from the early history of Globe. After it burned down the town worked with the Hollis family to ensure a place for a new, modern style movie theater. Since the theater is in downtown it is very accessible and within walking distance of restaurants as well as the local night life.
