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.

Summerfest 2012 Kicks Off

Summerfest 2012 Kicks Off

It’s been a whole year since the last Summerfest.  You didn’t think you could last until now could you?  Well, the wait is over.  We have rides, games and food galore!  Come out and enjoy time in the sun and ring in the summer with this trademark Fountain Valley event.  Brave the contraptions of death that pass themselves off as carnival rides.  (My favorite is the “Monkey Cages”).  Then wind down with some “Scooter” bumper cars and the merry-go-round.  Spend some time with friends, old and new. Visit the friendly folks over at the FYC booth.   Whatever you do, you’re bound to have a good time at Summerfest 2012!

Fountain Valley Fashion

Fountain Valley Fashion Show

Fountain Valley Fashion Show

The first weekend of June brings a pleasant event to the all who love fashion and food! There will be a Fashion Show held in Doyle Hall at Fountain Valley’s Holy Spirit Catholic Church. The official name of the event will be Let’s Go On Vacation Luncheon and Fashion Show.  The event is sponsored by Stein Mart and starts at 11:30and lasts until about 2:30 PM.  Come a little earlier for a better seat.  There are door prizes, so you may be one of your lucky winners! Tickets are $25.  We hope to see you there!

Update: This was a nice cozy event with plentiful food and friendly people. Although I arrived a *tad* bit late, I was still greeted like I was a regular. Actually I knew several people there. The beverages were modestly priced even though it was a fundraiser. A few buckaroos for a glass of vino is just fine by me! Cabernet sauvignon please! The event was decorated in a fun way. With a name like “Let’s Go on a Vacation!”, you can imagine how every table had images of destination travel spots. They even had picture holders made of wine corks! Good job to all those who put on this wonderful Fountain Valley event! Congratulations to all the raffle winners! We hope to see you all again next year!
