PHOENIX -- Valley Parrotheads have something to tweet about. Phoenix's Mayor Greg Stanton proclaimed Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013 Jimmy Buffett Day.

Fans will take over Cityscape in Downtown Phoenix for a pre-concert party celebrating the "Songs of the Century" tour at US Airways Center on Thursday.

"Mr. Buffett's songs have delighted generations of listeners," Stanton said in a statement. "He is celebrated as an American artist and the creator of idyllic state of mind known to Parrotheads everywhere as 'Margaritaville' -- where it's always 5 o'clock."

The city will close Central avenue downtown and turn it into an Ultimate Margarita Beach Party. The party kicks off at Noon, leading up to the concert at 8 p.m.

The event is free and includes food vendors and drink tents in the street. It's certainly no Jimmy Buffett party without 48,000 pounds of sand. Proceeds will benefit the 100 Club of Arizona.
