Fire aid for Fallbrook

Posted @ 3:53 PM

The community aid group "Fallbrook After The Ashes" is scheduled this Sunday to host a street fair downtown to raise money for victims of the Rice Canyon fire.
The fair will be held from noon to 5 p.m. on Main Street. All of the proceeds will go toward helping people affected by the fires.
The fair will feature a tribute to local firefighters and law enforcement, local vendor booths, live and silent auctions, live bands, food, wine tasting, a beer garden, and a children's area.
Some of the featured musicians will include Matt Hensley of Flogging Molly, Raiz Music, and Fear the Fat Guy.
The Rice Canyon fire destroyed more than 200 homes in Fallbrook -- half of them in the Valley Oaks Mobile Ranch off Reche Road.
