(Victorville)—It is one of the most exciting times of the year in the High Desert, and it is almost upon us once again. That’s right, it is almost time for the San Bernardino County Fair.
This year’s theme is “BEE-lieve in FAIR e-tails”, as the fair runs from May 24th thru June 1st. The fair, presented by Alaska USA Federal Credit Union, offers all of the traditions of a county fair, such as competitive exhibits, fair food, vendors, grounds entertainments, livestock, carnival rides and lots more. What is new this year? Donnita Karres, Marketing Director at the High Desert Event Center, spoke to High Desert Daily about what to expect.
“We have a new CEO, Geoff Hinds, and this year we will have a Fairy Tale Forest in Kids Kountry,” said Karres. “We also have more entertainment this year with new and exciting artists performing right here in the Victor Valley. I am so excited about our theme! Bee-lieve in fairy tales, it just makes you feel happy about all the amazing attractions the fair brings to our community.”
This year’s fair will feature a variety of family entertainment so you can Bee-lieve in Fair-etails! With all-time favorite shows like Russell Bros. Circus, The Magic of Frank Thurston, Hypnotist-Mark Yuzuik, and the Turkey Stampede. The grounds always smile with Tadpole the Clown and PJ the Clown of Many Faces, Fuzzy Critters and the Balloon Man. The attractions are a wonderland of amazement and education with a Fair-etail Forrest, Drum Circle and more.
