It was another busy weekend at Fairplex! We had events happening all over campus and we spent some time with the community too. Here’s what went down:

pomona police department santa cop party

Santa Cop Party: The Pomona Police Department hosted their annual Santa Cop party this weekend. We have spent the last few weeks helping to prepare for the event by collecting and sorting toys for the families who attended. We also brought Thummer, the LA County Fair mascot, out to the event to say hello to all the guests. We had a blast!
