Big Hat Days in Clovis

For the first time in the three years I've lived in Clovis, I finally went to the Big Hat Days with my girlfriend Debbie. It's held every year around this time and is one of the largest craft shows in Central California. It's a two-day free event that includes 400 arts and crafts booths, family carnival, music and international food. The weekend event draws over 140,000 people and is held in Old Town Clovis.

I loved the vibrant colors of the tie dye booth so I took out my camera and started taking pictures. Now that I'm blogging I take my camera with me everywhere, you never know when an opportunity might present itself.

It was a beautiful day outside, the sun shining and a slight breeze. Debbie and I shared a warm pretzel with parmasian cheese, it was yummy. The kids seemed to be enjoying the various rides in the carnival.

This is a first for me, your eyes are not deceiving themselves that IS a dog not a child, in the "dog carriage"? I love the pink, that's still my favorite color.

It was a fun day had by up on my To Do list for Clovis is the Rodeo at the end of April. And the Farmers Market too when that starts up.


  1. It looks like you had a great time. I love those dog carriages. We were talking about that this weekend and wondering if the cats would actually sit in one of those. :)

  2. It was alot of fun ~ I have never seen one of those before, only in CA I think :o)
