SAN ELIJO — The seventh annual San Elijo Hills Country Fair will offer sights, tastes, sounds and experiences for the whole family. The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 26 at San Elijo Elementary School, 1615 Schoolhouse Way.
“The Country Fair raises money for educational programs,” said Michelle Philbrick, one of many event organizers. All proceeds benefit San Elijo Elementary School (SEES).
Admission to the fair is free and tickets for rides, games and food will be available for sale at the event. New this year are the Giant Zorb balls (human-size hamster balls) for both kids and adults. Returning is the Trampoline Bungee Jump and a 25-foot Gondola Ferris Wheel.
The festival will include live performances of international music and dance by local artists throughout the day and a Hoe Down Throw Down with performances by SEES teachers on the hour throughout the day.
“The Hoe Down Throw Down will feature our very own SEES teachers as they serenade us with Karaoke tunes selected by the audience,” said Philbrick. “For even more fun, you can join in with them and sing to your heart’s content.”
There also will be arts and crafts, a silent auction with items for the whole family, a petting zoo, a train that travels through fabled “Route 66,” and inflatable jumpies and slides. Additional highlights include a Prize Walk offering oversized Sock Monkeys and more than 20 professional midway games.
