96th Annual Festival at the National Orange Show Returns Memorial Day Weekend
San Bernardino, Calif, May 6th, 2011: GCF Events along with Ray Cammack Shows (RCS) is back with their second newly revitalized production of The Festival at the National Orange Show. An annual tradition of the National Orange Show Organization for 100 years (with the exception of 4 years during WWII), the festival was adopted by the two companies in 2010. With a resume that includes carnivals such as the Orange County Fair, San Diego County Fair, Los Angels County Fair, and Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, The Festival organizers promise another dynamic production focused on family-friendly rides and entertainment.
The Festival will include five fun-filled days of exciting attractions, free live entertainment (with paid admission), unique art exhibits, local community stage performances, mouth-watering fair food, state-of-the-art carnival rides and more.
“With gas prices on the rise, we are focusing on providing an extremely affordable local alternative for families,” commented Tony Fiori, Director of Media Marketing for RCS.
