Tempe, Arizona, is a college hub just east of Phoenix and is home to Arizona State University, making it very popular with the younger generations and attracting many fans of the performing arts with the Center of the Arts. As well as hosting regular concerts, dances and comedy shows, the suburb offers many other attractions from desert discoveries to contemporary art and even the local aquarium.

Beyond being a college destination and grand tourist attraction, Tempe works hard to bring its community together by hosting several community events, such as the Fantasy of Lights Boat Parade and the No FOMB (Fear of Missing Brunch), a brunch crawl in downtown Tempe. The city also holds special events such as the Kickball League bringing the community together.
