The larger-than-life wine cork display for Paso Robles was edged out in the voting as the 10-layer display of Oceano and Nipomo took the prize with moving dolphins and bright colors.
The inaugural Showcase of Cities display at the 2018 California Mid- State Fair was a roaring success! And with thousands of fair-goers viewing the displays and casting their votes, the People’s Choice Award for best display went to the combined efforts of Oceano/Nipomo.
Ten communities – plus the County of San Luis Obispo (Visit SLO) and Cal Poly University – were showcased in a dynamic and animated display located in the very large showcase windows of the Frontier Pavilion in Frontier Town.
Displays featured the brightest and best aspects of each city or town, and were designed to encourage future opportunities for the viewer to discover hidden treasures and make visitation plans to specific attractions.
Participating communities include Paso Robles, Templeton, Atascadero, Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande, Oceano & Nipomo, Cal Poly and Visit SLO Cal.
The 2019 California Mid-State Fair runs July 17-28.
