The Oro Valley Marketplace is open, maybe not officially, but Dick’s Sporting Goods was open this past weekend.  The traffic lights are functioning and both entrances from Oracle and Tangerine are functional.

Driving by the Walmart there are signs on all the doors saying it will be open for business October 29, 2008 at 7:30 am.  Many of the stores and theater will be opening in the next week following.  There is a great deal of additional work going on around the mall.

One of the things that caught my eye were the water tanks that look like watermelons from Tangerine.  I thought it was a nice touch making water storage tanks look like watermelons.  However, when I drove by and got a closer look I had to smile even more.  The tanks aren’t watermelons they are cactus.  They too are known for their ability to hold water.  I have to admit we do see more cactus around Oro Valley than we do watermelons.
