Workers put the finishing touches on the new copper dome at the old state capitol in Phoenix. The old capitol is now the Arizona Capitol Museum.
Arizona celebrates its centennial next week. On February 14 we mark 100 years in the union. From the Grand Canyon to the Mexican border, parties and fetes are planned statewide. Some of the festivities have already happened - Buckeye marked the state's centennial with a parade and rodeo two weeks ago - but el gran fiesta happens this weekend at the state capitol with the Arizona Best Fest.
So happy birthday Arizona.
