Sun, Fun Greet Vis­i­tors Dur­ing Week­end Fete

Escalon Times - - NEWS -

Escalon’s an­nual sum­mer cel­e­bra­tion, Park Fete, pro­vided plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to make some good mem­o­ries with fam­ily and friends over the week­end. The fes­tiv­i­ties started on Fri­day af­ter­noon, July 14 and con­tin­ued through­out the day and into the evening on Satur­day, July 15.

Of­fi­cials re­ported a rel­a­tively mel­low crowd and near triple digit heat ap­peared to have kept num­bers a lit­tle lower than in past years, but at­ten­dees en­joyed all things Park Fete, from the pa­rade to food, mu­sic and more. Here are some photos from the fes­tive event.

Ac­tion was fast and fu­ri­ous in Fri­day evening’s an­nual corn­hole tour­na­ment spon­sored by the Escalon Po­lice Depart­ment.

Sib­lings Alden, 6, and Bai­ley Schultz, 8, of Val­ley Home found a lit­tle bit of shade to en­joy their ice cream on Satur­day, with Alden opt­ing for a ba­nana swirl of fla­vor in his, Bai­ley choos­ing mint.

A fix­ture in the Satur­day morn­ing pa­rade, the Escalon Azores Band also took a turn on stage on Satur­day af­ter­noon, per­form­ing for a large crowd.

Kids of all ages en­joyed the ‘reck­less’ ride, which did some spins and swings.
