The Chamber Review September/October 2018

It's ClovisFest time on October 27 & October 28. We are very busy getting ready for the 44th annual ClovisFest celebration in Old Town presented by Table Mountain Casino. There are many new exciting events and attractions this year for the entire family. Starting at 6:00 am on both Saturday and Sunday please come out and visit the spectacular Hot Air Balloon Fun Fly presented by Community Medical Centers, taking off from the Clovis Rodeo Grounds. It is awe inspiring to see these mammoth balloons fill with hot air and slowly lift off and drift over the streets of Clovis. Right after the balloons take off we welcome everyone to walk across Clovis Avenue to the ClovisFest street festival. From 3rd to 8th street along Pollasky we will have over 250 craft, food and entertainment booths. Along with our vendors we have our exciting International Village, presented by the Fresno/Clovis Convention and Visitors Bureau. The large shaded stage will be set up on Bullard & Woodworth Avenues that will feature performances by a variety of cultural groups on both Saturday and Sunday. On 5th Street we will showcase our local auto dealerships with our New Car Row. Come check out the 2019 models from your favorite auto manufacturers. On 4th street next to the American Legion Hall we will have the Michelob Ultra Beer Garden and live music stage featuring the best local and regional rock and country music acts. Along 7th Street we will have our new Kids Zone that will feature pumpkin decorating, princesses, robots, petting zoo, pony rides and other family-friendly entertainment.
