(Victorville)– The City of Victorville will host its 18th Annual Fall Festival, the High Desert’s largest street fair, Oct. 5. The event will begin with the Opening Ceremony taking place on the main stage at 11:30 a.m., in front of City Hall. As part of the Opening Ceremony, the City will dedicate its Legacy Courtyard.
The Legacy Courtyard project came to fruition in 2012 when the City celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The courtyard represents the foundation of a thriving civic center and growing community and will feature a statue entitled “For the People”. The statue and courtyard will be installed in the parking area in front of City Hall and will be a public venue. Those wishing to add their legacy at the courtyard are invited to do so by purchasing a custom, inscribed brick. Bricks can be purchased by submitting an order form on the City’s website.
The City expects more than 15,000 visitors to attend this year’s Fall Festival, which is a FREE family-oriented event that features live entertainment, children’s rides, hands-on activities, a mobile skate park, a book fair, a food court and beer garden, vehicle displays, and craft and information vendors.
Visitors are encouraged to come early to experience the High Desert’s largest street fair. There will be plenty of FREE parking in the San Bernardino County Courthouse parking lot, which can be accessed from Seneca Drive and Roy Rogers Drive. This year’s Fall Festival will run from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m in front of City Hall located at 14343 Civic Dr.
