There’s always a lot going on at Five Flags! From the best family programming, to exciting sports and the nation’s top touring performers, the Five Flags Center is the Tri-States home for quality entertainment.

Welcome LA HABRA CITRUS FAIR

The La Habra Area Chamber of Commerce began holding the La Habra Citrus Fair in 2010 to provide local entertainment and education about the history of La Habra, as well as to raise money for local non-profits. The Fair normally attracts 30,000 to 40,000 attendees over the weekend. The Youth Expo and Livestock Show has schools competing with livestock, horticulture and art programs.  Our students are responsible for their animals — purchasing, raising and competing for top honors during the Citrus Fair.

We are happy to be unveiling the beautiful new web design for this amazing event!

WELCOME GONZALES TRAVEL!

12We are excited to have Gonzales Travel join the Saffire family! We are very much looking forward to working with the City of Gonzales to help showcase its amazing history!

Gonzales holds a unique place in Texas history as the site of the firing of the first shot for Texas independence. On October 2, 1835, eighteen townsmen stood on the bank of the Guadalupe River and refused to give up their small cannon to the Mexican Army. A flag was fashioned showing a black replica of the cannon on a white background with words that would echo through the years, “Come and Take it.” After the fall of the Alamo, General Sam Houston ordered the town of Gonzales burned. Later soldiers and townspeople returned to Gonzales to rebuild their town.

We can’t wait for everyone to see the great website we have for this beautiful city! Look out for updates on The Dirt!

WELCOME VISIT JOPLIN!

We’re ecstatic to have Visit Joplin join the Saffire Family! Just looking at some photos of the city can make you feel like you’re at home!

Joplin is a city in southern Jasper County and northern Newton County in the southwestern corner of the US state of Missouri. Joplin is named for Reverend Harris Joplin, an early settler and the founder of the area’s first Methodist congregation. Joplin was established in 1873 and expanded significantly from the wealth created by the mining of zinc; its growth faltered after World War II when the price of the mineral collapsed. The city gained travelers as Route 66 passed through it; “Joplin, Missouri” is among the lyrics to Bobby Troup’s legendary song, immortalizing the city among others on the famous highway.

We are happy to be unveiling the beautiful new web design for this amazing destination!

Welcome Northern Wisconsin State Fair!

 

The Saffire Team has known the team at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair for a few years now thanks to both team’s involvement in IAFE.

Something everyone should know about this Fair is that it is located in Chippewa Falls, WI — and Leinenkugels is brewed in Chippewa Falls! The Leinenkugel family has been a big supporter of this fair and many areas of the fairgrounds are even named after the family and brewery  I think a toast of Summer Shandy might be in order!

The fair is held every July and has been growing in attendance every year! The fair reported a record-breaking attendance of 84,720 last year. With all of the great events lined up every year, expect this awesome event to grow even more!
