Country fair


Not exactly Downey... but, today we attended the Atherton Baptist Homes 27th Annual Country Fair. My friend's parents (who are from Downey) retired to the Baptist home about 20 years ago and have loved the welcoming community Atherton offers.

Alhambra residents turn out in droves to participate in the fair each year. There was lots of food, fun and entertainment for kids and families. These girls seemed to be having a great time.

It was a beautiful, warm day—the perfect setting for a Country Fair.
