Snow hung on pine branches as Flagstaff’s Marine Color Guard honored Arizona’s centennial this morning at the Pioneer Museum.
Locals visited the museum throughout the day where a new Centennial exhibit is on display.
The exhibit is a preview of a larger exhibit planned for the spring.
It will showcase each decade of Flagstaff’s history.
Sixty eight-year-old color guard member Johnny Anaya was born and raised in Flagstaff.
He says his favorite memories are of the Flagstaff All-Indian Powwow, which occurred every Fourth of July between 1929 and 1980.
“Those days were days of festivities, so I think those were the best days of my life," he says.
Today’s festivities continue at the Pioneer Museum through 6 o’clock, with bell ringing every hour on the hour.
