The Chamber Review September/October 2018 - Page 16



Table Mountain Casino ClovisFest 2018 – a Clovis Chamber event - is no longer the small craft fair it was when it began 44 years ago. Old Town Clovis now welcomes thousands of Clovis and Fresno locals for free with exciting attractions and over 200 craft and commercial vendor booths. Every year ClovisFest gets bigger and better, and this year is no exception. This year’s ClovisFest is your ultimate destination for family fun, foodies, and fall gift-buyers.

ClovisFest received a big facelift. Festivalgoers can now enjoy cooler weather, as the dates are moved to October 27th and 28th this year, beginning at dawn and running into the evening hours. The favorite centerpieces of ClovisFest are expanded. Find something for everyone at ClovisFest 2018:

• The Community Medical Centers Hot Air Balloon Fun Fly. Marvel at the beauty and majesty of fanciful hot air balloons taking off each morning at 7 am from the Clovis Rodeo Grounds. (Launch will be dependent on weather.) Early birds are welcome to watch the balloons inflate starting at around 6:15 am, with breakfast provided for purchase by Waffilicious, Jitters (specialty coffees and drinks), and Bobby Salazar's breakfast burritos.
