Junior Livestock Auction Champions to be Honored at 2019 Monterey County Fair Heritage Foundation Announces this Year’s Scholarship Recipient and Exhibitor of 2019 Heritage Hog

Area youth and their animals will be honored as champions after the Monterey County Fair Junior Livestock Auction, set to begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 31.

Monterey, CA, August 11, 2019 — Area youth and their animals will be honored as champions after the Monterey County Fair Junior Livestock Auction, set to begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 31.

In addition, the Monterey County Fair Heritage Foundation announced that this year’s Scholarship recipient of $2,500 and exhibitor of the 2019 Heritage Hog is
Ivan Trujillo from Greenfield High School FFA. Trujillo was raised in the Salinas Valley and will be a senior this coming school year at Greenfield High.

“The heart and soul of the fair is the junior livestock program,” said Kelly Violini, CEO MCF. “Many of the exhibitors relay on their earnings from their projects to pay for their college educations. Supporting the junior livestock auction, not only supports the youth of our county, but is a tax-deductible donation.”

Check-in for buyers at the Junior Livestock Auction will begin at 8:00 a.m. in the Livestock Event Center with breakfast provided by Margarita Maniacs. Morning announcements and the dedication of the 2019 Auction will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the sale kicking off promptly at 9:00 a.m. There is no break for lunch this year, but the event will continue straight through, concluding with the sale of the Monterey County Fair Heritage Foundation Hog. At this point, all buyers are invited to enjoy a BBQ Reception in the Seaside Room with hosted bar. At the reception, the winner of the 2019 Top Buyer with highest gross and Top Buyer with number of lots purchased will be announced.

Trujillo dreams of becoming the “first generation” in his family to attend college after high school, and has a career goal of becoming an Agricultural Educator. He is hopeful that he will inspire others in his community to strive to fulfill their dreams, just as he has. If his name sounds familiar, he was the recipient of the 2019 Salinas Valley Fair’s Heritage Scholarship.

Trujillo has a variety of interests in FFA and has held several leadership roles in his local FFA Chapter, as well the Monterey Bay Section and local Region. He has attended both the State FFA and National FFA Leadership Conferences, where he was able to network with others and build his network of like-minded individuals. Trujillo recently earned his State Degree in FFA. One teacher described him as having a “wonderful sense of humor, strong work ethic, and has a positive influence on those around him.”

After high school, he plans to pursue a higher education at one of several colleges, focusing on Agriculture Education or Agri-Business, hoping to return to our area and become an Ag Teacher and FFA Advisor one day, to give back to his “amazing community.” He walks the walk by volunteering for various community events, as his busy schedule permits.

All proceeds from the sale of the Heritage Hog will benefit youth in the community by promoting scholarship opportunities, agricultural awareness, and help improve the barns, grounds, and event center venues at the Monterey County Fair.

For information or to support the Heritage Hog, contact the Heritage Foundation Team of Butch & Gary. Gary Robinson is at 831-809-1317 and Butch Lindley is at 831-596-9902.

Carnival Rides Run the Gamut from Fun to Scary at the 2019 Monterey County Fair, Aug. 29-Sept. 2

The Monterey County Fair’s popular Carnival returns this year with 30 rides for the 83rd Annual Fair, set for Aug. 29-Sept. 2, 2019.

Monterey, CA, August 01, 2019 — The Monterey County Fair’s popular Carnival returns this year with 30 rides for the 83rd Annual Fair, set for Aug. 29-Sept. 2, 2019.

Come ride on the safe and exciting rides from Helm and Sons Amusements. There is a stellar line-up of action-packed rides this year, which features 30 great rides to enjoy, from spectacular scream-inducing rides to fun rides and attractions for families and kids. With new carnival rides and improved games, the Fair is popular with families who want to bring their kids and grandkids out for a day of great family fun.

There is fun for all ages in the Carnival, with rides including the 70-foot tall Century Wheel and the unique red-white-and-blue Americana Wheel. Enjoy a slide on burlap sacks on the Alpine Slide — every kid loves slides, and the almost 100-foot-long Alpine Slide lets you and three of your friends slide down side-by-side at the same time!

Take a thrilling stroll through the House of the Dead, if you dare; or walk through the festive Mardi Gras, a two-story mirror maze with a spiral slide at the end. The little ones will enjoy The Cool Bears, which features four giant “cool” bears that they can spin and sit in.

The Xtreme Star Dancer is one of the most popular rides on the midway. Upon boarding, riders are secured with over-the-shoulder restraints, and as the claw begins to rotate, it starts to swing back and forth until it reaches its full height of 60 feet in the air! Combining a spinning and swinging motion, the Star Dancer provides riders with a completely unique riding experience.

For the little riders, there are wide selection of rides in Cub Country, a special kid-friendly zone with rides and amenities just their size. No scary monsters or screaming fast rides here! Just gentle fun for little ones and their families, including the Fantasy Carousel, Baja Buggies, Turtle Races, Flying Dragon, Krazy Planes and Gummi and Firedog Inflatables.

Some of the new rides this year include the ever-popular Gravitron, the classic Tilt-a-Whirl, the exciting Gold Miner, the max-intensity Insomniac, the spinning Tornado and the aptly named Sizzler. If the sizzling speed doesn’t give you a clue, the added twirling of the cars certainly will!

Carnival wristbands are $35, $25 in advance, and $25 online. Wristbands are available every day this year and all military and law enforcement receive a $5 discount every day. This is a coupon that can be exchanged for free popcorn, 2 for 1, free prize and a carnival wristband.

Fun Pack tickets will be sold at Sand City and Salinas Costco stores from July 25- August 29 and include two admission tickets, two carnival coupons, and multiple food coupons for $49.99.

Carnival tickets and wristbands can be purchased online at www.montereycountyfair.com or at Salinas or Sand City Costco stores.

Ride Monterey-Salinas Transit free from any stop. Just show your online ticket or park for $12 at the Monterey Pines Golf Course Thursday-Saturday or $8 to park at Monterey Peninsula College, Saturday-Monday with a free shuttle to the Fair provided by MST.

The Monterey County Fair will run from Thursday, Aug. 29-Monday, Sept. 2, 2019, at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center, 2004 Fairground Road, in Monterey. The theme of the 2019 fair is “High Tides and Carnival Rides.”

Country star Tenpenny, whose 2018 hit “Drunk Me” hit #2 on the U.S. country charts, will perform Thursday, Aug. 29 on the Garden Stage, and tops the list of country artists performing at the fair. Acts include a Carrie Underwood Tribute (Saturday, Aug. 31) and Garth Guy (Saturday, Aug. 31), a tribute to Garth Brooks. Journey Revisited (Friday, Aug. 30), a tribute to the great Bay Area band Journey, will also perform during the fair.

Tenpenny’s follow-up single, “Alcohol You Later,” released on Riser House/Columbia Nashville, also quickly climbed the country charts. Nashville resident Tenpenny released his debut album, “Black Crow,” in 2015, and his second album and full-length major label debut album “Telling All My Secrets” in 2018.

Established in 2011, Journey Revisited is an ensemble of top-tier professionals with the drive to deliver a faithful musical experience. Journey Revisited is dedicated to bringing the studio recordings of Journey to life on stage.

Two lead vocalists, Frank House and Kevin Jachetta, bring the classic Steve Perry- Gregg Rolie sound with their authentic re-creation of Journey’s distinctive vocals. Journey Revisited is on point in recreating that classic Journey sound, you won’t find a tighter sounding band around.

In 1996, producer John Stuart discovered and hired him to perform in the world famous “Legends in Concert” in Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach, Atlantic City, and several tours and one-night performances throughout the USA and Canada. Simmonds is still the only “Garth” on the Legends’ roster and still performs in many of the Legends shows.

Simmonds has also produced his own full-length show based on Garth’s live concerts. In 2014, Dean’s “Garth Guy” show was featured on the national television show, “World’s Greatest Tribute Bands” on Mark Cuban’s network, AXS TV.
