Tons of Family Fun at the Castaic Days Outdoor Festival

The Castaic Days Annual Event at Castaic Lake was a time for the whole family to come out and enjoy themselves. The event is an annual event. The weather was wonderful as children raced to see what each booth and event held. Dogs on leashes barked and pulled to race to the trees.

Gourmet Food Trucks provided a wide variety of food ranging from Polynesian to American. Games and Activities ranging from huge ball children could climb into to army water games. Water guns thrilled the young people.

Dogs were available for adoption at the Dog Adoption Event, and there were several vendors selling animal supplies. The smaller children enjoyed the petting zoo which held a miniature horse, goat, chicken, and turtles. . Splash Dogs, a nationally recognized dog enthusiast company was there providing a dock jumping event. All dogs were tracked and ranked as far as they could jump onto the water as their anxious owners ran with them to the end of the ramp throwing their toy in the water hopping their dog would jump after it. One lab puppy was so excited at the thought but hesitated jumping into the cold water. Reptacular Animals delighted all the kids as they wanted to touch and pet each one.

Continuous Live Entertainment including Grammy award nominee’s Lisa Haley and the Zydekats entertained all who passed by the huge stage. Music and bands ranged from jazz to rock to even Gladys and Kin’s Polynesian Dance School and Entertainment who entertain at private parties, luaus, fundraisers and corporate events.
