The band serves as a signature band supporting the music program of the Phoenix Patriot Foundation (PPF), a 501 c3 non-profit organization providing see BAND, page B-7 EDUCATION Debbie Ramsey Managing Editor O n S u n d a y, A p r i l 1 3 , Main Avenue will undergo a transformation that happens only once each year, with an expected 70,000 plus visitors streaming up and down the thoroughfare to experience the 28th annual Avocado Festival, sponsored each year by the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce. This year’s event looks to be as popular as ever. “Over 450 vendors are signed up and we have a great cross-selection of crafts and more,” said chamber CEO Lila MacDonald. There are some local organizations and businesses amongst the vendors. “Our Avenue of the Arts features the work by many local artists,” said MacDonald. “The Fallbrook Football Boosters sell avocado packs every year; our Fallbrook Vintage Car Club has a mini car show at the festival; packing houses like Del Rey and McDaniel’s are involved, as well as many others. For those who enjoy the festival each year, new “avocado” items always catch the eye. “There will be avocado oil soaps, body oil, and lotions; avocado artwork, avocado honey, and avocado beer,” explained MacDonald. “Of course, there will also be guacamole and I believe avocado gelato. Each of these vendors will be identified with a banner that says “Stop for Avocado Products.” Live music is also on tap. “There will be four live bands,” said MacDonald, adding they would be located in these spots: Avenue of the Arts, the beer garden (at Scrappy’s Tire, 346 S. Main Ave.), and two at the community stage, which this year will be at Main and Elder (the Elder House property). Contests are always part of the fun at the Avocado Festival. While Village News photo in recent years contest locations have been at the “community stage” across from Mission Theater, the stage will now be located at the Elder House, corner of Main and Elder. Outstanding students recognized Yamkova, Drew, Huff, see FESTIVAL, page A-10 and Zelasco honored “I am so excited to see the community collaboration that goes into this; it is such a huge event, it really takes a village to accomplish it.” Lucette Moramarco Staff Writer Nataliya Yamkova of Oasis High School and Hailey Drew, Ben Huff, and Brittney Zelasco of Fallbrook High School were honored as Students of the Month for the Fallbrook Union High School District (FUHSD) at a special celebratory breakfast held April 3 at the Fallbrook Community Center. see STUDENTS, page C-11 Behind the scenes of Five girls named allFallbrook’s “big show” league for SPORTS Debbie Ramsey Managing Editor Throwing a special event with a guest list of 70,000 is not an easy task. Fallbrook’s signature annual event, the Avocado Festival, takes a full year of planning and collaboration on behalf of the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce to produce. “It’s a team effort,” said chamber CEO Lila MacDonald. “We have two co-chairs this year, George Archibald (one of the original founders) and Gary Shimer, in addition to a committee of over 25 people to help with all aspects of festival planning. Also, even more volunteers help with sub- committees and those can contain an additional two to 25 people per subcommittee.” Planning the Avocado Festival begins on the day of the event the year prior. “On the day of the festival, we give each vendor a ‘speedy renewal’ form which allows them to sign up for the next year and receive a discount,” said MacDonald. “About 50 percent take advantage of this, which means we are already half-full for the next year.” Logistical plans and needed supplies are many when it comes to the big event.
