They always had a couple of the girls in their colorful but skimpy costumes on the stage in front just before their show to advertise. They would be dancing what we called the hoochy-coochy. I wasn't old enough to go to that show so I don't know what went on inside that tent. One tent had wrestling and boxing matches. Their men would wres- tle or box any volunteers. Our popular high school coach, Roy Mattson, wrestled once and he won. I.t was very exciting as all his high school boys were there rootingfor him. Word had spread quickly that he was going to wrestle so quite a crowd gath- ered for this match. I can't recall if any females attended these events but I don't think many did. I know I didn't but I liked to listen to the pre-show barker and watch their wrestlers strut- ting around on the platform. It seldom rained at fair time, not like now when it keeps rain- ing on our parade. We did not have a parade in those days but we surely enjoyed every minute of the fair. If it did rain, we had to be careful walking around the carnival area as their electric cables were strewn across the grounds and if we stepped on a cable we got quite a shock. The citrus exhibits were much larger and there was more en- thusiasm by the people to work on these exhibits. The rules were not as stringent as they are to- day. There were no flower, food or art shows like we have today so everyone concentrated on the citrus exhibits. My Vadon grand- parents' home was just a half- block from the Pavilion so as a child I usually stayed there for the duration of the Fair and didn't miss a day. As a teenager I would always check the balco- January 15, 1997, Cloverdale Reveille, Page 7 ny in the afternoons to see if Grandma Vadon was there watching so I would know how close to the boy I should dance. It was an old-time small town country fair but it had sights, sounds and memories that our modern fairs and carnivals will never have and you will never see again except maybe in the movies. The Citrus Fair moved to its new location and grand ..... new building in 1952. The old Pavilion was converted to a fur- niture store and it burned down a few years later. Cloverdale res- idents still look forward to our fair every year, however, for us old-timers it will never have,he warm personal atmosphere of our little fair on West Street. Marie V.

Getting just the 0ght amount of mayo and mustard and the perfect balance of lettuce, tomato, and onion so the sand- wich is not too wet and not too dry is difficult enough. But how can you beat deli sliced, full-flavored meat with the tired old lunch meat from the store? It's an art form best left to professionals. Kim McConnell and her daughter Elizabeth Walker are dedicated to providing you with the most mouth watering deli sandwiches imaginable. They have a wide variety of sandwich toppings and each order comes with a compli- merrtary salad. They also make party trays, carry Dryers Ice Cream, and have an Espressomachine and panache beans. Their salads are custom made and they have a wide assortment of beverages and chips. They pride themselves on their delrs friendly atmosphere that features tables as well as bar seating. They have several brands of beer on tap including microbrewery beer. ,, [ ......................................................................................................................................................
