KINGMAN, Ariz. – The City of Kingman is celebrating National road Trip Day this Friday, May 27, 2022. Andy Devine will be closed between 3rdStreet and 5th St. from 2-8:00 p.m. The section of 4th St. between Beale St. and Andy Devine will be closed from 2-10:00 p.m.

Kingman will host the proclamation of the very first National Day Calendar’s National Road Trip Day on Friday, May 27, 2022! This block party will have live music from Sound Hole + Painterz and Garagemahal, delicious and festive specials at downtown restaurants, a beer garden, and a car show in addition to the unveiling of a new statue and Historic Downtown virtual guided tour. Event starts at 3pm and ends at 10pm. 

The virtual tour will have signage at each tour stop with QR codes that people can scan. When scanned, it will load an audio recording about the interesting history of that location, then lead them to the next location.

For this block party, we will have printed maps to guide participants on the tour. The maps have stamp boxes for each spot (like a passport) and we’ll have volunteers stationed at each point of interest to stamp their tour map. Everyone who completes the tour will be entered into a drawing, held that night, for prizes donated by downtown Kingman businesses.

Marlo, the founder of National Day Calendar, will be dressed in his very best road trip attire for his proclamation at our event at 5pm. Keep an ear out for National Day Calendar’s podcast as they will be featuring the event on May 27th! After this event, National Road Trip Day will also be on all future calendars.
