Many of us that go to Centennial High school have lived in the Riverside area for a very long time. After a while, it gets harder to find fun things to do on the weekends or when you have free time. Well, look no further! The George Ingalls Equestrian Event Center in Norco has fun events throughout the entire year for people of all ages to enjoy.

On March 21st and March 22nd, the center held it’s annual Alpaca Fest! At the Alpaca Fest, which had free admission, visitors could roam around and look at various alpacas in their petting zoo as well watch them in competitions. There were coloring pages for children and items being sold made out of alpaca fur (without hurting the alpacas, of course).

ASB president Kosha Patel stated, “I loved Alpaca Fest! It was different and they’re so cute, like giant puppies.” Many volunteers even helped visitors, like Kosha, feed the alpacas.

Outside the Alpaca Fest was the George Ingalls memorial, which was newly built outside the Equestrian Event Center. Anyone who went to Alpaca Fest was free to go to the memorial in honor of George Ingalls and his generous donations to the community and service to the country.

Alpaca Fest isn’t the only fun and unique event for people to go to at the George Ingalls Equestrian Center. It also holds the Norco Fair during Labor Day weekend annually and various rodeos and horse shows. Not only that, but there is a park right across the street. Next time there seems like there is absolutely nothing to do, explore around your local neighborhood. Sometimes the most unusual, yet fun, events take place that you never even knew about!
