A hot street fair

It was a warm one for the Fall Grand Avenue Festival, but the sweat-inducing weather didn’t keep the crowds away from the sights, sounds, and smells of one of the region’s largest street fairs.  The bi-annual Fall Grand Avenue Festival was another fun morning and afternoon, with thousands of pedestrians and hundreds of vendors. It was a walker’s paradise. As always, it was put on by the Escondido Chamber of Commerce.

Rorie Johnston, CEO of the Escondido Chamber, told The Times-Advocate: “The Grand Ave Festival was filled with spectacular entertainment from our local schools, dance groups, martial arts and playhouse. High school choirs and soloist rocked the stage!  The temperature soared into the high nineties, but that didn’t stop patrons from shopping for unique gifts and enjoying international food from both the street vendors and shops on Grand Avenue.”

Join us again in the Spring for the May 20th Grand Ave Festival.
