The San Dieguito Heritage Museum has over the decades accessioned and preserved many wedding dresses. After a recent reorganization of our storage, we found a delightful number of them in such good condition, Mary Lou Binkenz decided to create an exhibit in her family's farmhouse, The Teten House, open Saturdays, noon to 4 PM.

San Diego County Fair has been approved by the 22nd District Agricultural Association to run June 11 to July 4 ending with a July 4 fireworks show. Details are still being decided regarding theme, ticket prices, parking, budget and logistics. What we know so far is that it will be a scaled down version allowing only 10,000 visitors a day. It will have many food vendors, exhibits, contests and shows, and will be agriculture based with health safety the top priority. All details will be decided and released following their April board meeting. Although rides and big grandstand concerts will not happen this summer, we are keeping fingers crossed that along with crazy fair food and agriculture and other exhibits, that there will be live music, magic shows, comedy, and other shows in this summers plans. Admission and parking tickets, along with all other details will be posted on SDFair.com in April. We're on top of this, so keep an eye on this page! Sooo happy to have the Fair return!
