It’s a bit of a drive to Vista from our lovely desert but close enough for a day trip to our family, especially to see some Scottish Games! Pipes and drums, dancing, sheep herding dogs, story time, and much, much more. Festivals like these are a great way to introduce world history and culture to kids (and adults) of all ages.
You have to add this to your calendar! I realize that it’s not in the desert but it should be well worth the drive to Vista for the day. Not only is there an Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum SHOW but there will be a Mini Maker Fair as well!
