We enjoyed the inaugural Fresno Chili Festival on Saturday and we look forward to watching it grow in the years to come. Thank you for mentioning our coverage of the Chili Festival. You can watch some Flamenco Dancers from the festival at

And thanks for the shout out to our fellow Fresno Blogger at

Mike, I wanted to thank you again for letting me know about local events. Ben and I enjoyed the festival and we had a good laugh watching the chili-eating contest. Here are some photos Ben took:

Thank you, Dan!

Have a lovely day in Fresno!

It’s no coincidence that the neighborhood pools that were closed are all located in high poverty stricken areas.

Nice round up! I feel so Fresnan, having had my car stolen from in front of my home in February. I guess it’s a trade off, cause I also got to listen to awesome music from the Father’s Day Blues Fest in Tower without leaving my house this weekend. Life in Tower has its perks.
