Yes it’s hot, but the show will go on.
The Porterville Fair has added shade cloth to the buildings and 9 Porta Coolers were brought in to help beat the heat so head on out in the evening for some good old-fashioned carnival/fair fun.
According to their press release:
“The Fair is extremely excited to bring the community back together with the excitement of the annual Fair. You will find your favorite fair rides along with a few new ones to fulfill the thrill seeker within that has been put on pause with the rest of the world for the past 15 months. All your favorite games of skill and chance along with a fun filled Kiddie Land for the little ones, will be rolling into town lighting up the night sky. Pre-sale discount carnival tickets are $24.00. Ride wristbands will be $29.00 after 4:00 PM Thursday, July 8th. Pre-sale tickets are available at Bank of the Sierra Porterville locations, Town & Country Market, Vallarta Shopping Center, Grocery Outlet and the Fair office.
The “Dine” portion of this year’s Fair will be a highlight for many. You’ll find your favorite “dogs” whether it is the corn variety or bacon wrapped with many options in between. You will get your fill of deep fried treats that are just not the same outside of fair festivities and activities. Additional options include traditional & specialty pizza, amazing & delicious BBQ, yummy tacos, burritos and nachos. We’ve all waited long enough. Don’t be afraid to start your meal with dessert! The Fair will have specialty funnel cake, churro sundaes, shaved ice from the adorable Kona Ice truck or a refreshing root beer float from a Porterville Fair regular – California Ice Cream. The Eagles will open the beer garden serving ice cold adult beverages each day to cool you down on the hot summer nights. Shaded seating will be provided for all.”
