Tulare County Fair boasts 70 feet of patriotism
TULARE – Thanks to a generous donation from the Tulare Rotary Club, the Tulare County Fair boasts a 70-foot-tall flag pole to display the U.S. flag., in time for the 2017 fair, Sept. 13-17.
“We have been wanting a flag pole that will allow the flag to be seen from all over the fairgrounds, and this pole allows us to do that,” said Pamela Fyock, CEO of the Tulare County Fair. “We appreciate this partnership with the Tulare Rotary Club.”
The Rotary Club chose to underwrite the project to show support for local veterans and to support donors of the 9/11 blood drive that the club organizes each year, explained Rotarian Donnette Silva Carter, CEO of the Tulare Chamber of Commerce.
The Fair gives gate admission tickets to blood donors, Fyock noted.
“We are proud to honor our nation and our veterans with this display of the flag, and Rotarians made it possible. We are very grateful.”
The Tulare County Fair will offer a week of entertainment for the family, free with gate admission, as well as educational activities for children, the annual Junior Livestock Auction (on Sunday, Sept. 17), fair food, fun rides and more.
Discount ticket packages are now available online at tcfair.org. Carnival wristbands offer a one-day, all-access pass on midway rides.
