People! There’s a lot of stuff going on here at Fairplex – besides the Fair. Sure, the Fair is our biggest event, but Fairplex is more than giant turkey legs and carnival rides. Way more. I happen to know all about what goes on because I work here and I’m going to share some of the inside scoop with you in the Fairplex Insider blog – hence the precious user name, Scoopster.
Ok. What’s happening at Fairplex? You’d think things might be slow around here, what with the end-of-school-what-can-I-do-with-the-kids dilemma hanging heavy on parents’ collective minds. Not so. There are more than 20 events going on between now and the end of June. Some are even free (or nearly free). Check out full calendar listings at Fairplex.com
The coolest thing to do this weekend at Fairplex
The Mission Circuit Dog Show (Thursday, May 22 – Monday, May 26, 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.) is one of the largest dog shows in the country. You don’t have to travel to New York City to see a huge variety of breeds strutting their pouffed-up, blown-dry stuff. It’s like a live version of the Best in Show movie (about the world famous Westminster Dog Show). Tip: The humans are as much fun to watch as the dogs, skipping around the ring, dog cookies at the ready.
If you’re thinking about getting a warm and fuzzy 4-legged friend to take home with you, this is the place to investigate more than 140 breeds all in one place.
This is a huge dog show covering several Fairplex buildings and outdoor areas. It’s very affordable entertainment, too. General admission is only $6. Park for $8 at Gate 17 on Fairplex Drive. Or go for valet parking at the Sheraton Fairplex parking lot and it’s only $5 more.
See you next post!
