TUSTIN – The 2019 Tustin Tiller Days took place from Thursday, Oct. 3, to Sunday, Oct. 6., free of admission, and had many carnival rides, games and food.
Tustin Tiller Days is a community fair to help promote non-profit companies and raise funds for the city, allowing the Tustin community to bond and enjoy the festivities. The fair had different entertainment for everyone, including popular rides such as the Caterpillar Roller Coaster to The Zipper.
“The Zipper is my favorite ride,” Glory Verduzco, a sophomore from Beckman High School, states while waiting in line to go back on the zipper for “the third time tonight!”
Every year, Tustin Tiller Days feature their big, bright and flashy Ferris wheel, one of the popular attractions at the event.
“My favorite ride is the Ferris wheel because at the top I can see the whole fair,” says Kevin Espenoza, a junior from Beckman High School.
Tustin’s local entertainment centers also perform during the fair to advertise their company and showcase their talents. A returning company, the Smurf Kids dance company, takes the stage to promote their studio to Tustin citizens.
“Even though I have been watching my son perform on this exact stage every year, I still get blown away by the dance and the crowd’s energy cheering on my boy,” says Kathy Ghanouni, a parent of a performer.
Around 65,000 citizens of Tustin participated in the three-day festivities. People reunite with old friends, students from other schools and meet new people while supporting their community, watching performances, eating fair food, playing games and going on rides. For people who missed the event, Tustin Tiller Days will be back next year.
