Another Summerfest wraps up another summer
Fireworks vied with neon in the night sky over Stonehouse Park Saturday as the Summerfest carnival wrapped up its two-day run. For many, Labor Day marks the end of summer, but for Murietans, it's Summerfest, the annual festival that celebrates the carefree joys of the season. Summerfest is a volunteer effort founded and run by Murietans.
Saturday afternoon, children at Summerfest rode planes, trains, automobiles and even big red apples, and all motorcycle rules were suspended for the day. Carnival fun continued with live music, bingo, bounce houses, games and prizes, and a tempting menu of treats at concession stands along the midway.
The Summerfest Carnival opened Friday evening at Stonehouse Park, treating a large crowd of all ages to a neon-lit adventure of rides, music, food and games. The celebration of another Rancho Murieta summer continues Saturday, starting at noon and running until 10 p.m.
