It may sound a little cheesy, but when I was thinking about , I couldn’t help but hear the song “Reunited” by Peaches & Herb. The lyrics may be talking more about reuniting after a breakup, but the first line of the chorus, “Reunited, and it feels so good,” seems to be applicable to this situation.

The “spring Tucson events,” for lack of another phrase, afford visitors various options to enjoy gem and mineral shows, with safety mandates and social distancing requirements in place. The majority of shows run through the fourth weekend of April 2021 and started or are starting this first full weekend of April.

**Be sure to check each respective show’s website or social media feeds before traveling a distance to ensure operating hours and regulations.
