Known locally as the “Gundo”, it’s almost more of a state of mind than an unincorporated town, but that’s where you find this weekend’s perfect family event. In fact, there will be generations of families attending the El Segundo Hometown Fair & Carnival this Saturday May 5th from 10am to 3pm because small-town family life is the driving force behind the charm of anything happening in El Segundo. Don’t bring your GPS, just remember the following address: Library Park, 600 Main Street, El Segundo, directly across from El Segundo High School.
Like in years past, the fair is accented by traditional activities like snacking on fair food, watching toddlers perform dance routines, game booths, participate in a bake-off, listen to some live music, and a carnival ride or two. If you have time, stop by El Segundo’s Historic Richmond Street and mosey into Richmond Bar & Grill. It’s a no fuss all thrills, cash only bar that serves hard to find craft beers, hot dog sandwiches, and homemade potato chips.
This event helps support El Segundo School Activity groups, community groups and Recreation and Park programming. This year’s carnival will have an inflatable rock climbing wall, mechinacal bull, bouncers and more.
The annual Bake-Off will take place in the Gazebo in Library Park. Entries will be accepted from 10-11am. Judging will begin shortly after with winners announced at 1pm. Categories include: Cookies, Petite Desserts and Breads & Pastries. For more information call (310) 524-2700 or visit www.elsegundo.org.
