Happy birthday to us! It’s been two years since we introduced the magazine that you hold in your hands today, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how warmly the South Valley has embraced it. It is a pure joy to share the stories of the fascinating people, places and events that make this such a vibrant place to live.

Nothing says autumn like a trip to the pumpkin patch, and we’ll share a bit about some of the ones we love. Each is unique, so we encourage you to visit as many as you can. 
Ready for a night out? Reserve your spot at Fresno’s Tower Theatre Lounge to enjoy the Leftover Cuties, a “vintage pop” band with one foot in the past and one in the future.

Go treasure hunting during Old Town Clovis’ Glorious Junk Days, or stop by Gypsy’s Attic in Kingsburg, where the founder paints and sells reclaimed and antique furniture with the underlying goal of fighting breast cancer.

Foodies will love the Bari Olive Oil and Harvest Festival. The Dinuba operation produces some of California’s purest olive oil, where the olives are pressed just a pit’s throw away from where they grow.

You’ll be inspired by the Happy Trails Riding Academy, where horses are used as therapy for people with special needs. And if the thought of speaking in public turns your stomach, meet the Toastmasters, who have been turning tentative talkers into polished public speakers for a century.
Our deepest gratitude to our writers, photographers and designers for contributing their talents to these pages, to our advertisers for making it possible to share this publication with you for free, and to you, our readers, for cheering us on. Here’s to many more years together – enjoy!

October 2016 - Happy 2nd Birthday, Enjoy!
