Menifee is to have it's very own celebration for our dedicated men and women of the Armed Forces. This Saturday, May 16th from 2:30-7pm there will be a Carnival, Child Safety Fair, Entertainment, Vendor Market, and much more. From Skydivers to Face Painters, it promises to be a blast for all!

GSLS is hosting this event and entrance is free. 26800 Newport Road... just look for the very big, colorful rides on the corner of Winterhawk and Newport... across from Mobil. Sponsored by a Menifee-based non-profit group, Carnival Entertainment out of San Diego will be providing a few acres of stomach bending action! I am personally looking forward to some good, old fashioned popcorn and cotton candy while I watch my kids ride the ferris wheel and bounce themselves into blissful bellyaches like only a carnival can provide! The fair closes down at 7pm, but the carnival stays open until 8pm... or a long as it takes for us parents to get kicked off the rides!!!

Everyone is welcomed to come out and honor loved ones by purchasing a flag for our much honored "field of flags" engagement. There will be a bake sale fundraiser for WIA Specialist Ryan Price and care package donations taken for the 1st Batallion 7th Marines out of Camp Pendelton.

Local Fire, EMT, Police and even McGruff will be on hand to hang out with the kids and show off their cool gear. Performances by PVHS Color Guard, Rifle Team, and Drama Club will add a variety to the performances scheduled that day.

All food is catered by Carnitas Express. There will be plenty of shade and chairs for those who want to catch a break and watch their little ones kick around on the AYSO play field. And don't forget the art contest: http://www.gslcmsmenifee.org/art_contest.cfm
