Events in Cochise County aren’t ‘taxing’!

OK, it’s tax season. Ugh! I owe this year (I am NOT happy).

But that day shouldn’t ruin your whole month. Most of Cochise County‘s events for April are FREE! And the ones that aren’t are still a bargain! So take a drive to southeastern Arizona, and have some fun!
