(2014 edition of the California Mid-Winter Fair and Fiesta)….It starts Friday.
Opening Ceremonies are at 12:00 noon at the Fair entrance. The theme for this year’s Fair is Now Playing, displaying films, commercials and television shows filmed in the Imperial County. The Imperial County Film Commission is assisting with the displays and information on the productions. The Commission has a booth in the Preble Building, where several sets have been constructed. There will even be a mock drive-in showing film clips on a screen. The Carnival rides this year will feature nine new rides, including rides for the little ones who would not otherwise be allowed on a carnival ride. Sprint car racing also returns at this year’s fair. The races will be held Saturday, March 8th at the Grandstand area. The Fair will also feature a Blue Gallery building. It allows young people that do not have an animal to enter in the fair, to participate, anyway. The building will feature several projects from kids around the county.
