Records Broken During The 12 Day Big Fresno Fair

Ideal weather for the Big Fresno Fair made a difference at the turnstiles and visitors and vendors both say it was a memorable twelve day run. One of the big attractions at this year's fair was the World Discovery Building. Saturday there were more than 11–thousand people who spent time admiring all it has to offer.

Aaron Snyder brought his family up from Visalia. "We like the food, the fair food that's a big hit with us and going through the different booths like the quilts, cookies and stuff like that."

It's too early to tell if the 2012 edition of the fair sets an attendance record but they do know that opening day was a record breaker. Deputy fair manager Lauri King says the same goes for the annual food drive. "We broke our own record for the single day largest food drive and that was Thursday our Feed the Need Community Food Drive. We broke that record with 76.5 tons of food being collected."

Hydrocephalus Support and Awareness

 

The Hydrocephalus Association Fresno which has been in Fresno for many years is having an awareness day on October 14th at Woodward Park.  Here, you’ll find professional representatives who give fantastic information on this condition and also note Children’s Hospital Central California as the closest place for care.  These walks each year bring together hundreds from our large valley community including most of the neurosurgery department at Valley Children’s, and really provides great resources to our families here who have a child with hydrocephalus.  

Fresno Hydrocephalus Walk 

Hydrocephalus is a problem with the flow of the fluid that surrounds the brain. This fluid is called the cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF. It surrounds the brain and spinal cord, and helps cushion the brain.
