There is something fun for everyone at Sun Fiesta.

This year the event will be offering two new concepts: a 5K Race with T-shirts and prizes and a dunk tank with possible town dignitaries and local well-known personalities sitting in the enclosure on the mini board. There will be two beer and wine tents with tables and chairs for people to use while they enjoy eating a variety of food from the many choices offered by numerous vendors in the food court. Live entertainment will be offered throughout all three days.

A Kids Korner will have a bounce house, games of chance for the children and arts and crafts projects for them to create. The Bed Races are always welcome fun to watch as people cheer their teams on to victory and prizes. The Miss Sun Fiesta contest is another big event everyone is anxious to see. This year the age to enter has been changed to 17 for entrants.

Numerous Arts and Crafts vendors, some offering one-of-kind items, art work, unique clothing and some food items for sale along with information booths will be on their aisles.

Sun Fiesta T-shirts, always a big seller will be available for sale as well. A raffle and auction which are always well-attended will be held.
