Universal Fairs brings the second annual “West Valley Fair and Music Festival” to University of Phoenix stadium March 3-5. The festival will offer an array of attractions for all age groups.
“Our kids had a blast last year. I think they could use a few more rides, but the price isn’t too bad for the family fun,” Kyle Togger, Glendale resident, said.
The event will feature two stages where musical acts will perform. There will also be a meet and greet with Disney star, Skai Jackson. Other attractions include fair rides, petting zoo, pig races, camel rides, pony rides and much more.
“I heard Aaron Carter is going to be performing this year. That is kind of cool,” Sandra Martins said.
Hours for the festival are March 3, from 2 p.m. – 11 p.m., March 4, from 10 a.m. – midnight and March 5, from 12 p.m. – 11 p.m. and the event is located at 1 Cardinals Dr. in Glendale, Arizona.
“I had so much fun last year. I just really hope they keep putting the festival on every year,” said Melissa Fischer of Phoenix.
