Fall Back Festival

Gaslamp Children’s Street Fair…

…is set to kick off on Sunday, November 6th, 2011 from 11am to 4:00pm on Island Avenue between 4th and 5th Avenues at the Historical Gaslamp Museum.  The celebration is a historical  and cultural street fair celebrating San Diego’s heritage in the 1800’s when daylight savings was implemented.

The overall theme is that when we set the clocks back on this day, we go back to the 1800’s in Downtown San Diego and visit the likes of Wyatt Earp, Alonzo Horton and other historical figures from San Diego’s past.  Children will get to take a ride on an old fashioned hay ride and imagine what it would have been like to be on a stage coach on the once dirt streets.

Good Family Fun in The Gaslamp Quater

There will be blacksmith booths set up, simulated gold panning so kids can strike it rich and even a show where Wyatt Earp will defend 4th Avenue from dangerous outlaws.  Other children’s activities include pony rides and a  petting zoo with llamas.

Family activities include family portraits in the traditional 1800’s time period duds.  There will be food vendors and even an ice cream eating contest.  Let the kiddos imaginations run wild and get them away from the iPad or TV for a day.  This FREE event is an ideal way to spend the day and enjoy a part of San Diego’s heritage.
