  • National Orange Show Events Center
    When The National Orange Show Events Center held it first exhibition in 1889, it was predictably a citrus show. That's not to say that attendees weren't impressed. At that point, oranges were a fairly new phenomenon?the Washington Navel orange had only arrived in the San Bernadino area about 15 years prior?and the show piqued public interest to such an extent that it ran profitably for eleven days. Since that first success, the center has grown substantially, partially because its original building burned down and was replaced with a more expansive one. The new facilities can now accommodate shows of hot new fruits?or anything else, for that matter?in 150,000 square feet of exhibit space. There's also a quarter-mile speedway for car races, and a satellite off-track wagering center, where visitors bet on horse races.

  • Color Fun Fest Dallas
    If the Color Fun Fest 5K were televised, it might have viewers wondering if someone had messed with their TVs' color settings. That's because, at one-kilometer intervals across the race course, staffers shower runners with neon powders, transforming them into a kind of collective stampeding rainbow, which is illuminated by powerful black lights during night waves. But participants won't find a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow?or, for that matter, a podium; the 5K run is noncompetitive and doesn't track times. Instead, they'll step into a lively finish-line festival?with music during the run, vendors, and a DJ-led after party?where colors fly through the air and stopwatches are smashed like pi?atas. The celebration draws inspiration from Holi, a festival of colors primarily celebrated in India and Nepal. In the communal spirit of that festival, Color Fun Fest 5K helps raise funds for and awareness of local charities, non-profits, and local businesses. The event also encourages family participation, with free admission for kids age 12 and under and a daytime run.

  • Inland Empire 66ers
    Baseball in San Bernardino dates back to 1899. More than a century's worth of history includes such team names as the Kittens and the Pioneers. It also includes a drought from 1950?1987, during which the city lacked enough dirt to build a baseball field. That drought ended when the San Bernardino Spirit began play as part of the California League. In 1996, the Spirit became the Stampede, and in 2003, the Stampede became the 66ers, a name chosen in honor of the historic U.S. Route 66 that is famous for its hitchhiking umpires. Over the years, the 66ers organization has spent time as the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Mariners, Dodgers, and most recently, the Angels. The team has brought honor to each of its MLB partners, as it has won six California League championships since 1995.

  • Route 66 Food Truck Festival
    “This is not your typical food-truck festival; this event will offer cutting-edge culinary flavors from chefs who want to take your palate on a journey you won't soon forget. You've got an unbelievable festival of haute cuisine you don’t want to miss." This is how PBS television host and founder of the event, Cliff Young, characterizes the mouth-watering event. More than 20 mobile and skilled chefs from southern California will be parking their mobile eateries inside San Manuel Stadium on April 22 to fill visitor's bellies with such culinary creations as oven-roasted turkey paninis, gooey house-made mac 'n' cheese with hickory-smoked bacon, and red velvet cupcakes as decadent as gold-plated helipads. A beer garden allows of-age visitors to complement savory tidbits with sips of ale. Not only does the event showcase the area's finest mobile-food mavens, but also a portion of the event's proceeds will go to The Symphonie Jeunesse Youth Orchestra for Strings.
