VISALIA - Just 7 days away! Join us for the inaugural Visalia Convention Center Boots, Brews and Bacon Festival at the Visalia Convention Center on Saturday, July 29, 2017. The Boots, Brews and Bacon Festival is a beer tasting festival designed to build the appreciation of craft brew all while listening to live music and enjoying what else, bacon! The festival will take place indoors in the nicely air conditioned building on July 29 and will feature craft beers, both from local distributers and breweries and local restaurants sampling their best bacon bites for you to taste.

In addition to crafts, domestics and imports, root beer provided by the A&W Root Beer Float Mobile will be available for sampling. Perhaps you can try your first stout beer- ice cream mini float. Wine provided by Cacciatore Fine Wines will be available for sampling, for those attendees who wish for even more variety than already available. A $1,000 CASH PRIZE and a frying pan with bacon trophy to display will be awarded to the restaurant for the best bacon bite as voted by the attendees.  


Halloween Time at the Disneyland Adds More Spooky Fun with Expansion into Disney California Adventure Park

ANAHEIM - A spell is cast during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort as more spooky fun expands into Disney California Adventure Park this year, from Friday, Sept. 15, through Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017.

At Disney California Adventure Park for the first time, Cars Land in Disney California Adventure will transform with a special Haul-O-Ween makeover as the citizens of Radiator Springs don Halloween costumes and decorate their respective homes for the season. Lightning McQueen, Mater, Cruz, Red and DJ will be all dressed up–as a super hero, a "van-pire," a pirate, a clown and a punk rocker, ready to go "trunk-or-treating." Attractions transform, too, with Mater's Junkyard Jamboree turning spooky as the Graveyard JamBOOree, and Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters getting a seasonal twist to become Luigi's Honkin' Haul-O-Ween.
