Sam’s Community Fair is This Saturday

I’ll be out tomorrow because I’ll be helping to prepare for an annual community fair. Now in its 16th year, the Temescal Valley Community Faire brings over a thousand people together to enjoy lots of free entertainment and cheap food. These are some pictures from last year’s event.

There are lots of FREE things to enjoy like games and prizes, jumpers for the kids, arts and crafts, live local entertainment, and all-you-can-eat watermelon. The food is really cheap at 50-cents for hot dogs, cotton candy, snow cones, popcorn, and sodas. They keep the costs of food low on purpose. You can enjoy a whole family’s meal for under $5!

Sam’s been head of the committee who puts it on, The Temescal Valley Heritage Foundation, for over 10 years now. We’ve seen this community fair grow from just a few hundred people to now over a thousand. If you’re in the area, drop by the Deleo Regional Sports Park on Saturday, May 21, 2016 from 11 am to 4 pm. It’s a really low-key event that’s perfect for the family.

A helicopter flies in and out of the park. The kids get a real kick out of it.

This picture cracks me up. The boys each had a balloon but Logan accidentally let go of his. That’s my nanny, Cindy, in the background with the genuinely surprised expression.

There’s a small train that the kids get to ride on for free. Parker went on it three or four times. Here he is with his grandma. The train is perfect for the little ones.

More info on the fair can be found on their Facebook page.

I’ll also be taking Monday off, so I’ll be back to the blog on Tuesday. Have a great weekend, everyone!
