ANONYMOUS 5 Live entertainment is by Anonymous 5. The Anonymous 5 dates back to 1965 when some Southern California high school friends, after watching the Beatles and the Rolling Stones on Ed Sullivan, decided to form a rock and roll band. Of the original five, the three original band members still performing are Kerry Hagney on guitar, Vince Mercurio on bass guitar, and Gary Marzolino also on guitar. A year later, 1966, Stan Stokes joined the band as the keyboard player and is still in the band. In later years, the band was joined by Vinney Mastrosimone on drums, Bob Gongwer on guitar, Jan Maletz on guitar and vocals and Jennifer Maletz on vocals. The band plays rock and roll from the 1960’s and 70’s along with a bit of everything else. THE PALM SPRINGS AIR MUSEUM The Palm Springs Air Museum is an educational non-profit organization, with over 59 flying and static aircraft on display. Included in the four hangars of 86,000 square feet of climate controlled hangar space are exhibits detailing events from World War II, the Korea and Vietnam conflicts. The hangars are themed, and divided into the B-17 hangar, the European / Army Hangar, the Pacific / Navy hangar, and the newest hangar, the Gen. Miles Korea and Vietnam Hangar. LIVE BAND: Anonymous 5 will perform at the Palm Springs Air Museum MASH BASH 2018. In addition to the 14 World War II warbirds on display, are several jet airplanes and helicopters.

THE FALLBROOK AVOCADO FESTIVAL For over thirty years Fallbrook, California, has been known for its spectacular Avocado Festival. Held each year in the spring, this festival showcases the amazing avocado in a friendly, small-town atmosphere. Hundreds of booths line Fallbrook’s Main Avenue, attracting thousands of people for a day of endless fun and fabulous food. The Festival will be held on Sunday, April 15 th from 9am to 5pm. Admission, parking and shuttles are all free. With avocados as the theme, the food is one of the main focuses of the experience. An amazing array of avocado dishes is available, from guacamole to avocado chips to avocado ice cream. Though avocados are the food of the day, you will still find an incredible variety of dining options at the festival. Among the many food booths are offerings of barbeque, Chinese, Greek, and Mexican, just to name a few. Those with a sweet tooth will have trouble deciding between all of the desserts offered at the festival, including ice cream, funnel cakes, and cookies. Plenty of ice-cold drinks are available at the festival as well, including local beer and signature margaritas at the Main Stage area. Don’t expect to leave the Fallbrook Avocado Festival empty-handed. Avocado-themed souvenirs are just a fraction of what is available to purchase. Booths that sell avocado items are clearly marked with a “Discover Fallbrook” pennant sign. Unique crafts and dazzling jewelry are some of the more popular items for sale, but the festival also has a Farmer’s Market with a selection of agricultural goods as well. Avocados, local citrus, honey and plants are sold, along with a variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as gorgeous flowers, lush greenery, and fragrant herbs. The Artisan Walk on Alvarado contains local artists’ creations and live demonstrations. There’s never a dull moment at the festival, which offers entertainment and activities for everyone. Local music performances are interspersed with live entertainment. Contests abound at the Fallbrook Avocado Festival, including Best-dressed Avocado, children’s avocado derby racing called the “Avocado 500”, Best Guacamole, Little Mr. and Miss Fallbrook, and Largest Avocado. Fallbrook is conveniently located near San Diego, Palm Springs, and Los Angeles, so it makes for a great day trip for those wanting to visit. Parking is tight for this increasingly popular event, so arrive as early as possible to secure a good space. Free and convenient shuttles are available so please check the website for pickup stops and parking. You can find all the information at IER March, 2018 Inland Entertainment Review 15
