Fall Fun

The 8th Annual Fall Fun Festival at Alta Vista Botanical Gardens was a great success. Over 500 people, including over 65 student volunteers from Vista Magnet Middle School, Guajome Park Academy, Rancho Buena Vista High School, and Vista High School, attended the festival, where they enjoyed live entertainment, children’s activities, face painting, a BBQ lunch, and a raffle. Members of The Woman’s Club of Vista helped 21 families and volunteers create scarecrows for the scarecrow contest. There was also a wide selection of vendors with things like jewelry, baked goods, organic personal care items, photography, art, and plants. Learn more about this beloved community tradition at
