The Arizona Centennial celebration on Feb. 14 included many events around the state.

One of these was a walking tour of historic downtown Prescott, where Del Rio Elementary School students, dressed in period attire, experienced first-hand local landmarks.

The DRS students were also privileged to lead a group of more than 100 spectators in the Pledge of Allegiance at the Courthouse Square during the Centennial tree celebration and plaque unveiling, which was led by County Supervisors Carol Springer, Chip Davis, and Tom Thurman.

Later in the afternoon, the DRS students led the ceremonial bell ringing on the courthouse steps at the official celebration time of 2:14 p.m.

Later that evening, nearly 700 guests celebrated during the Centennial Gala Dinner and Concert at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, where they were entertained by cowboy singer Johnny Western, who formerly toured with the Johnny Cash Show, Rex Allen Jr., J. David Sloan and Western Bred, and up-and-coming Western girl group Firefly, which won the 2010 Colgate Country Showdown.

Rounding out the entertainment was Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame member and Arizona's Official State Historian Marshall Trimble.

A fireworks display capped off the night of entertainment.
