In October the Tubac Presidio will mark the 237th anniversary of the commencement of the epic trek of Juan Bautista de Anza by offering a free showing of the film “The Anza Expedition.” This documentary tells the story of Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza who led over 240 settlers and soldiers on an epic journey that would change history. In 1775 they made the difficult 1,200-mile trek across unknown lands from the Tubac to the Pacific coast where they founded San Francisco. The history of the Anza Expedition connects to the timeless themes of emigration, opportunity, diversity and faith. The film is included with Park admission $5 adult, $2 youth 7-12 and children free.
