Summerfest 2015

Few things are as enjoyable as summer in Southern California. The fine folks in Fountain Valley want to make you feel nice and carefree with a little thing called Summerfest.

Summertime in the FV!

Summertime in the Fountain Valley!

Come on down to Mile Square Park at Brookhurst and Heil and take part in all the revelry! There are live bands, a car show, food & beverages, carnival rides, and games that challenge your skills!

Summerfest Car Show

These were the first ones to show up for the car show at Summerfest.

This year was an interesting Summerfest for me. As I was walking through the ‘Fest, I saw all the families going on rides. I conversed with several vendors in the booths. I saw familiar faces. Then I began to reminisce about all the fun times of the previous summers in Fountain Valley.  Fountain Valley truly is a nice place to live. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Free Coffee Christmas Eve

Hello wonderful people of Fountain Valley! Merry Christmas and to celebrate how about having a cup of coffee for free!?

Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony 2014

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! I love this time of year when family and friends reunite to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year!

Fountain Valley began the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony again at the Recreation Center off Brookhurst and Heil. The towering Christmas tree was lit. Fountain Valley started the season off with a bang with a spectacular fireworks show followed by food and games.

Fun and merriment was had by all with games like Snow Bowling, Give the Grinch a Heart, and more. There was even a bit of snow. Kids were trying to throw fistfuls of snow at each other. Residents of Fountain Valley were actually seen sledding down snow!

You could go indoors to meet the sponsors and vendors. representatives from Rosy Dental, Sam’s Club, and other Fountain Valley businesses were at the tables. You coúd even create and purchase a stuffed animal complete with a birth certificate. For those that love arts and crafts, you could even decorate your own tree shaped ornaments.

I sincerely hope that you enjoyed Fountain Valley’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Again, Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing you at the ceremony next year.

Taste of the Holy Spirit Annual Fall Festival 2014

This year’s Taste of the Holy Spirit Annual Fall Festival 2014 is underway. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and it seems to have been worth it. There’s great food, friendly people, and cool entertainment. Kick back in the shade, relax, and sip on some “nước mía” (sugar cane drink) as you listen to cover bands play the Beatles. Enjoy!

Concerts in the Park

During the summer, you can find amazing events and things to do all over Southern California.
*In* July, Fountain Valley has fun family events like Concerts in the Park on Thursday nights. Its a free concert, so don’t worry. There’ll be food trucks that serve bacon wrapped dogs. There’s a farmers market where you can find sweet bundt cakes. This last week there was an Eagles tribute band that the crowd loved! Come out tonight to the last concert of the summer! I’ll be there too!

As Summerfest Closes

Another Summerfest in Fountain Valley comes to a close this evening. The weather was great and so was the festival!

Everyone in the crowds of people were friendly and the doggies were too. The dog jumping competition was interesting and the band played awesome classic rock songs like "Don’t Stop Believing! ".

The rides, unfortunately, were too scary to get on. Oh, the food looked and smelled amazing too!

I hope you all had a good time and I’ll see you out there next year!
