VIDEO: North Fair Oaks Festival Draws Crowd of 35,000

The community came out in droves to enjoy the festival as well as support the Sheriff’s programs.

If you went anywhere near Middlefield Road on Sunday, you would have heard the jubilant sounds of music blaring and San Mateo County residents enjoying the activities of the day.

The event raised over $100,000, according to Sheriff Greg Munks, a majority which will go to the Sheriff’s Activities League programs to provide kids with after school activities.  

The diversity of Redwood City was reflected in the attendees as well as the entertainment.

Performances ranged from native Aztec dancers to the patriotic tunes of the Peninsula Scout Band. The crowning of the Queen of the Festival also drew in hundreds of spectators, all who admired 's ambition and hard work to earn her title.

Festival Director Catherine Matsuyo Tompkison-Graham said anyone and everyone can participate in the festival, so look forward to next year, Aug. 19, 2012!
