Everybody loves a block party and YOU’RE INVITED! Saturday, November 10, from 10 am to 4 pm, the Perez Business District Community will be holding their annual Perez Road Fall Festival benefiting and supporting fundraising for Boys and Girls Club, Shelter from the Storm, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, FIND, VFW, The Community Blood Bank, Animal Samaritans and Save-A-Pet. In this tough economy, businesses have to be creative and work hard to earn business. The festival, expecting to build on last year’s success, will again aim to stimulate community spirit and economic activity by coming together providing a fun family event while benefiting some very worthy causes. The event is spearheaded by Astonish Events who, with over 13 years of event planning, projects that as many as 2500-5000 people will be coming out to enjoy this year’s festivities.
The Master of Ceremonies will be the charismatic and effervescent Brian Wanzet, also known as Bella da Ball. CV Weekly’s own DJ Craig Michaels and Musical Affair Entertainment will be supplying interactive FUN, with music, dancing and Game Show Mania in the Family Fun Zone. The whole family will be encouraged to participate in dances such as the Cha Cha Slide, Conga, Twist contest, and many others. Kids and adults will experience the buzzers, lights and the excitement of seeing the crowd go wild as a row of four contestants square off in Game Show Mania. With a combination of general knowledge trivia and audio sound clips, the Game Show will appeal to everyone! Live music will be playing all throughout the event along with over 30 collector, specialty and “roading” vehicles on display, more than 150 vendor booths, artisans and crafters and a beer garden. The day will also include youth karate, hula and Zumba demonstrations. The event will be held on Perez Road, between Plaza and Summit roads in Cathedral City.
Parties interested in vending, exhibition, and/or demonstration opportunities at the festival are invited to apply by October 30. For registration information and sponsorship opportunities go to perezroadfestival.astonishevents.com or call Astonish Events at (760) 406-1414.
