Yay! It’s the Weekend! Yes, the Big Fresno Fair is gone for yet another year. We hope you got to go and did you happen to get the rolled tacos? And yes, the Solar Eclipse happened and we hope you got to see it (without looking directly at the sun). But there’s plenty of great stuff to do this weekend!
BTW: The next cool celestial event will be the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, not nearly as cool as a solar eclipse, but still pretty cool. The bad news is that you have to wait until Monday, Mar 25, 2024 at 12:12 AM! – We won’t wake you up, but we’ll remind you!
FRIDAY, October 20th:
While it’s not Friday the 13th today, it’s still spooky season and we’re seriously torn. Do we go for the original screening of Nightmare of Elm Street? Do you remember the first time you saw it? Recapture all those goosebumps again, or laugh at how tame it is now by catching it on the big screen at The Crest. Don’t fall asleep, get your best Freddy Krueger costume together and let’s do this!
Since you have your costume dialed in for this year, maybe you feel more like a party? There’s Fresnoween. It’s billed as Fresno’s largest annual Halloween Costume Party.
I don’t have anything big planned. Just a giant blowout party with all the Barbies, and planned choreography, and a bespoke song – you should stop by!-Barbie
Question: How many “Barbies” do you think will show?
Answer: All the Barbies will be there, obviously.
You know it’s the #1 costume for this year? Gates open at 8PM and the last band is set to stop at 2 AM!
Come on, Barbie, let’s go party!
SATURDAY, October 21st:
Three words. Taco Truck Throwdown, right? Don’t go back the the Real World, don’t change clothes – just switch over to “Hungover Barbie” and head back down to Chukchansi Park for the world-famous food festival, now in its 12th iteration. They’ll once again feature the best taco trucks in the Central Valley, live performances, and much more. Music from Cypress Hill, Tha Dogg Pound, and That Mexican OT – you would have to be Insane in the Membrane to miss it! (see what we did there?)
SUNDAY, October 22nd:
We’re not quite ready to get back to the Real World, at least yet. How about you? Maybe a little wine?
The Whole Vine Festival is a weekend-long event that showcases the best of the San Joaquin Valley’s grape industries. The Whole Vine Festival runs today from 10 AM to 4 PM. Here’s the thing, Sunday is a little quieter so it’s perfect fun for the whole family, with kid-friendly activities, culinary demonstrations, and local music performances, there’s something for everyone.

Barbie dreams in pink,
Elm Street’s shadows creep and sink,
Nightmare’s eyes do blink.
