Rancho Los Alamitos to host children’s fall Harvest Festival with ‘big top’ attractions

Children of all ages are asked to “step right up” to the annual Children’s Fall Harvest Festival at Rancho Los Alamitos on Sunday, Oct. 28. This year’s carnival theme will include live entertainment, sideshows, games and crafts that are free to the public.
The historic ranch and gardens is hosting the annual festival as an opportunity for families and friends to explore the grounds of Rancho Los Alamitos and go back to a time when the traveling carnival was the highlight of a child’s year.
The carnival’s “Big Top” attractions include Jim Gamble’s Puppet Productions, a company performing their original state-of-the-art shows using unique puppet characters and staging, The Jumbo Shrimp Circus, and Jason Tracy, a world-renowned yo-yo champion and his friends from the Golden Apple Yo-Yo Corporation.
Other acts and attractions featured in the Harvest Festival are a petting zoo, a costume parade and Chris the Magician. Admission and parking for the event is free, and visitors should park at California State University Long Beach on Palo Verde Avenue, just north of Bixby Hills Road, where shuttle service will transport guests to the Rancho.
Rancho Los Alamitos is located at 6400 East Bixby Hill Road in Long Beach.
