If you’re from the Sacramento region, you’re probably familiar with the local festivals. Now that we have a large number of people moving to Sacramento from San Francisco, San Jose, Mountain View, Palo Alto, and well, escaping the bay so to speak. I’ll give you the scoop like you’re new in town.
In the spring we have the Fair Oaks Fiesta, It’s organized by the Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce each year and is solely supported 100% by our community and business members that are all volunteers. It literally takes a village to put this put this event together. And a village we are.
The day is filled with fun activities and vendors with cool stuff to purchase. Food trucks too! The street in the village is lined on both sides by Classic cars. It starts off with a pancake breakfast at the community clubhouse. And you ain’t seen nothin’ if you miss the toilet bowl races!
The Governor of California lives in Fair Oaks. I heard a rumor that the Gavin Newsom was walking among us incognito. Wouldn’t that be something? I don’t know if he really did that or not. What a bummer to live here in beautiful Fair Oaks and not be able to walk around the park and enjoy the festivities. I would slap on a baseball cap and sunglasses too.
It was a fantastic! Music from the ’50s and ’60s could be heard all over. The weather was cool and breezy with clear blue skies. A perfect day!
I arrived just as Assemblyman Kevin Kiley was giving the opening remarks and started taking pictures of the Chamber of Commerce Leaders.
The toilet bowl races were hilarious. How do they stay on so well? It’s crazy to watch.
There were so many great booths to visit.
The Housewives of Fair Oaks Glasses are a must-have! I’m going to stop by the Mail House and pick some up for myself and maybe for housewarming presents for my Fair Oaks homebuyers. (My sister worked as a casting producer on BRAVO. She helped cast the Housewives. I’m not kidding.)
Do you have a baby shower coming up soon? You must visit Nana’s Gone Loopy. Her stuffed animals, bags, and blankets are made for comforting little ones. Easy to keep clean and ready to be drooled on. This will be your baby’s security blanket.
