CHICO, CA — The build-up for the annual Silver Dollar Fair is almost complete, with youth dropping off their animals, carnival rides erected and vendors rolling out their wares. The fair starts Thursday and wraps up Memorial Day.
"If you look at our schedule of events, you could spend two days here and not see everything," said Scott Stoller, fair manager.
The Oreo-eating piglet racers of Ham Bone Express were such a big hit last year that they were asked to return.
Other features include the burly Village Blacksmith, Russell Brothers Circus, the juggler/comedian Greg Frisbee Show, a hypnotist, clowns, balloons and puppets.
Bright lights — It won't just be your imagination, this year the carnival will be brighter than you remembered.
Stoller said major improvements have been made to the giant Ferris wheel, including the ability to have changing light patterns. The newly programmed LED bulbs use less energy, and give out more zing. Also, the area has a new 40-by-20 foot lighted entryway.
"This is the same carnival (rides) as at the state fair," Stoller said. "Your kids can go crazy here."
In addition to what fair lovers have come to expect, Stoller highlighted several of the features that are new this year.
The Yard/grandstand shows — People who enjoy the live entertainment at the fair will have extended opportunities this year in "The Yard." READ MORE: http://www.chicoer.com/fromthenewspaper/ci_18135199?source=hot_topics
