Have you seen them? University City’s County Fair banners feature Curie Elementary students this year; you’ll see them throughout University City on UCCA’s display light poles. The 2019 San Diego County Fair invites guests to skip down the yellow brick road and enter an “Oz-some” world inspired by L. Frank Baum’s classic tale, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” Visitors will journey to the Emerald City, meeting magical new friends along the way. Warm your heart creating new memories with your friends and family. With all of the adventures you’ll encounter, you’ll discover, “There’s no place like the Fair.” For more information about the 2019 County Fair, visit sdfair.com.
This year’s County Fair banners, which feature Curie students, were provided courtesy of the SD County Fair and will be given to the students as a keepsake once the Fair has concluded. There are 28 banners featuring Curie students displayed throughout UCCA’s banner district; can you find them all?
