On a beautiful November day, the Encinitas Fall Festival was in full swing. With over 450 booths to visit, plus dozens of retailers and performances, it was a great day for holiday shopping and entertainment. North County Health Services held a Fall Festival Kids Zone in The Lumberyard for the first time, where children of all ages could enjoy a wide range of interactive booths and activities, including a giant slide and a skate park. Thanks to Hill’s Ideal Balance, canine companions could take a break from the bustling festival at the dog park, also in The Lumberyard, with plenty of turf and an agility course provided by Zoom Room. The Lumberyard Courtyard Stage featured many unique performances, from The Bayou Brothers and Dance Connection, to Kehulili O Kailani and Zumba Dance demonstrations.
