Food Festival Pass a Big Hit for the CA State Fair | Sacramento, CA

I was invited to the Media Preview Day of the California State Fair and Food Festival last week and wow I was pleasantly surprised with the food options that are available this year.  I know for many of us the food is one of the main reasons we love going to the Fair, there is food on a stick, deep-fried goodies, and always a unique take on some food item.  Funnel Cakes and Corn Dogs are Fair Food classics and for our family, we always partake in the delicious fresh made cinnamon rolls, it’s an annual tradition. 
If you are looking to save money at the fair the food festival pass is the way to go.  Keep in mind if you can visit the fair on a Monday you can get in FREE by bringing 3 non-perishable food items per person to the California State Fair before 3 p.m.  If you have kiddos visit on Kid-Free Tuesdays, FREE admission for kids 12 and under and $2 rides for all ages.

The California State Fair held its inaugural Food Festival Competition on Saturday, July 13. With 30 food vendors participating in the competition, judges tasted more than 30 items and gave out awards in five categories: Side, Dessert, Fruity, Fried, and Entrée. There were two Best of Division winners, and one ultimate Best of Show winner.

The top prize went to Country Fair Cinnamon Rolls for their Bacon Pecan Cinnamon Roll.  I am totally not surprised at this, they are absolutely the best. I love that you can watch the cinnamon rolls being made as well as take home some to bake in your own oven.  I loved the classic Cinnamon Roll, after trying the new Bacon Pecan one, OMG, definitely a MUST when you are visiting the Fair this year!  You can find a list of the winners at the end of this post.

I was wowed with the Hawaaiin Chicken Pineapple Bowl by The Bacon Habit, what a beautiful presentation and not your typical food on a stick. The serving size was huge, I loved the pineapple chunks on the bottom of the scooped out pineapple, the chicken was moist and flavorful and the rice balanced it all out and made it quite filling. 

I am not a Vegan but have many Vegan friends so I was so happy to see a Vegan Food option at the California State Fair.  The owner of Frik’ N Vegan shared his heart on why he became Vegan and shared his heart on wanting to make delicious food that his non-Vegan friends would love and appreciate, his passion and love came through in his food.  You can find Frik’ N Vegan inside Building B.  Tell your Vegan friends, and even if you are not Vegan, this is a healthy food option, I’m not Vegan but loved his take on a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, seitan created with love on a toasted roll topped with cashew cheese and fresh bell peppers and onion as well as a choice of marinara sauce on the side or on.  They also have vegan buttery popcorn, nachos, and strawberry ice cream bars. You can also ask about their secret menu and gluten-free options!
As a funnel cake fan, I had not tried the Mexican Churro Style funnel cake, WOW, absolutely delicious, thank you to Gringos Mexican Funnel Cakes.  You have the right amount of crunch like a churro, and also the chewy goodness of a typical funnel cake, topped off with whipped cream and on mine caramel sauce drizzled on top, other toppings are available.  I could not finish the entire funnel cake so I brought the rest home, and I am happy to report, my boys finished it off with joy.  Because of the churro style, it was not soggy it held it’s texture.  

I tried the NEW chocolate covered bacon sprinkled with Tajin, YUM!  All of my favorite foods in one, this was delicious thank you again to The Bacon Habit.  I love Tajin on anything and chocolate covered bacon, the best of both worlds sweet and savory.  
California State fairgoers appear to be hungry for more excitement, as this year’s brand new Fair Food Festival Pass sold so fast, that more were ordered even before the Fair opened its gates. The California State Fair & Food Festival officially opened last Friday with big crowds, eagerly awaiting to get in. “We’re so thrilled Opening Day was such a great success; it’s fun seeing so many people and families out having a good time, and of course, eating at our 100 food booths,” said Rick Pickering, Cal Expo General Manager, and CEO. “We’ve worked hard to make this year’s State Fair the best yet – a fair for all Californians up and down the state. The food festival and the new Food Festival Pass are just part of what we have in store for the next two and a half weeks.”
The Food Festival Passes have been so popular that more have already been ordered for visitors to the fair in the weeks to come. People who purchase the Food Festival Pass can select four items from more than 30 different food vendors – including appetizers, entrees desserts, and more – all for only $28, (a $40 value). Nearly 30 food vendors created new food items for this year’s State Fair. A list of what you can get can be found here.

The Food Festival Pass can be purchased at the State Fair Box Office, Guest Services or at select State Fair Souvenir Shops. Food Festival Passes purchased online are picked up at the State Fair Box Office, prior to entering the Fair. It can be used by anyone, any day of the State Fair. The California State Fair & Food Festival runs through July  28th at Cal Expo.

Fairgoers are also encouraged to visit the website at or download the CA State Fair app where they can map out all of their eating adventures.

Interview Tips and How to Get Promoted

Way back before I became a stay at home mom, I used to be a recruiter helping others in career placement.  It was a really fun job!  It was more than a job to me I loved helping people find jobs and also loved helping our clients find the perfect match for a position they needed to be filled.  

The wide variety of companies we worked with keep my job exciting.  One day I would be looking for people with forklift skills and the next day I could be looking for someone with human resource skills.  I was able to tour unique facilities in the IT industry and several others too.  Many companies would have us perform the job ourselves so we were aware of what the position required.  

With this background and conversations, I have recently had with recent graduates and young people looking for summer jobs I thought I’d share a post that could help your teenagers as they are possibly interviewing for a summer job.

What not to do in an interview.
Be late, or get lost.  You would be surprised by how many people are actually late to an interview.  I understand sometimes emergencies happen.  Make sure you map out your route to the location days before you are going.  Give yourself enough time with extra traffic, or if there is an accident.  It is better to be early than late.  Even if you are way early you can sit in your car and practice your interview.  
During your interview do not answer your phone. Turn off your phone or put it on silent before you go into the office.  In this technological world, we live in, it is so easy to forget how distracting your phone or device can be.  Your first impression should be one of respect, you are respecting their time and giving them your undivided attention.   

Dressing appropriately.  People see you before they hear you.  First impressions are important.  How you care for yourself says a lot about you as a person.  If you look disheveled and unkempt, that will say something about you to your future employer.  You do not have to pretend to be something you are not, just put some effort in cleaning up, being well groomed, having work attire, depending on the position that will vary, but you don’t want to be dressed in business suit if the job requires manual labor and you do not want to be in jeans and steel toe boots if the job is in an office.  
Don’t ask about raises and promotion on your first interview.  We all desire the opportunity for promotion and increase and it is an important factor but I don’t recommend asking about this unless it is brought up by the interviewer.  In my opinion and experience, it also depends on how this is discussed.  Many times, in an interview, if not phrased correctly it can seem as you are already complaining about the pay before you start.  Let your hard work speak for itself.  Again in my opinion, even if a company states that there are no raises or additional commission or compensation, that could easily change if you are a game changer.  If you bring something to the table and bring in money to their bottom line, most companies are going to appreciate that and work with you as you bring value to the company.

Never lie on your resume.  This is so important, do not over embellish or lie, there is nothing worse than getting a  job that you love and then ending up losing it because they discover you lied.  As well as, when you lie you will lose confidence in yourself and you will not be able to sleep or rest confidently in the skills you said you have.  Always tell the truth.  Even if there is a certain requirement, be open and upfront, you could say “I may not have this one skill, but with your mentoring and training, I will”.  You could offer to shadow someone on your own time or take courses while you are learning the new industry.   

Don’t talk negatively about a former employer.  Your attitude towards your previous employer speaks volumes to a future employer.  Find something to say positive about your previous experiences.  At the very least every job is a learning and growing experience.  Focus on the positives!

Don’t be clueless about the company/industry. Research the company before your interview.  This shows enthusiasm as well as responsibility.  If you know someone who is in the industry you are applying for, ask them for keywords, ask them what is the most important quality for the position, find out as much as you can before you attend your interview.  

Don’t chew gum.  This is coming from a gum chewer, I love gum, but I will admit it is not the most flattering look on anyone.  

Practice your interview in the mirror.  Practice with your parents or a coach and ask for and receive their feedback.  Ask what can you do better?  How is your posture?  Did you keep eye contact?  When you look down or off to the side, it is not a sign of confidence.  Do you fidget?  Do you repeat words like “um” or “so” most of us have a word we repeat when we are nervous, work on eliminating those words?  
Have a firm handshake.  Your handshake shows confidence.  All of these little things speak volumes about yourself to others.  
Confidence.  Confidence comes from within, how do you feel about yourself?  What are you saying about yourself?  We can all work on our confidence, an easy way to start improving your confidence is saying positive affirmations.  Focus on your strengths!

Smile.  We often do not realize what are facial expressions look like.  Many times we are not mad or sad but may look that way because we are thinking in our head and not realizing what our facial expressions are saying.  When you smile you look more attractive.  If the job you are applying for interacts with people, smiling is very important, you will represent the company you are working for.  
Remember your manners.  It may sound simple but things like please and thank you go along way as well as yes sir, yes ma’am or addressing them by Mr. and Ms.  

Look the interviewer in the eye. I mentioned this briefly before, again I don’t think we realize how looking off to the side or down frequently gives the impression that we are not interested.  
Even if this is your first-time job, connect your volunteer work, coaching a team or after school tutoring or babysitting work as experience with people, responsibility, team player.

Have some questions ready, this shows interest and curiosity.

Recently at a local community class, I attended through he shared some great tips on “How to Get Promoted” these are great for everyone as well as for other relationships in our life, not just work related.  As a married couple these are great questions to ask each other, maybe shape them a little differently but still valuable.  

How to get promoted:
Spend time with your boss.  Ask to do a ride along or have lunch.  Sometimes getting out of the office helps gain a new perspective on your boss as well as learn from them in a different environment.  

Go to your boss and ask what you can do to help them, how can you help them solve problems, how can you make their life better, easier, how can you lighten their workload

Ask them what agitates you? Ask what do I do that I need to change.

Ask them will you mentor me, train me, develop me.

I have seen these tips work in my own life and benefit those close to me.  I hope you find these tips helpful and will share with those you know looking for employment or promotion.

A Benefit Concert for the NEW NICU at Mercy San Juan Hospital

Sacramento Helping Hands invites you to a concert by talented singing artist Vincent Harrill and friends!

Vincent brings back yesterday’s show tunes in elegant, Sinatra style. Proceeds will go to benefit Sacramento Helping Hands and the Mercy San Juan Hospital, NEW NICU Unit expansion project. Please join us for this exciting event!  

A ONE NIGHT only Sacramento concert to delight both young and old…FRIDAY, August 2, 2019 at 7 PM.

Enjoy a special evening of classic crooner favorites, as well as a blend of show tunes from popular musicals, past and present, delivered with a rich and beautiful tenor voice! Vincent is an up and coming, talented singer and actor, who has starred in several plays and performances and recently received a Buckley Award for Best Actor, for his role of Mr. Higgins in My Fair Lady!

This is a great way to change up ‘Date Night’ from the usual dinner and a movie this would make a great date night!  You will have time to grab dinner before or after the show. My husband and I love things like this.  We love supporting our local talent and the arts.  

If you have kids this is a family friendly event, kids are welcome.   I know that this talented young man  my boys were in a Christmas Musical with this young man, his voice is AMAZING, he has awesome stage presence.  

Purchase tickets from Sacramento Helping Hands here

This is not a sponsored post, I have purchased my own tickets in support of this project.  All four of my children were born at Mercy San Juan Hospital.  While we did not need the NICU which I am grateful for, I know friends whose lives have been helped and touched by our local NICU.  The new NICU is a necessity and one of state of the art equipment.  With the new NICU, parents will have private rooms and be able to spend the night with their baby.  I cannot imagine the toll on a family of going back and forth between home and the NICU for some many months at a time.  Some who live far away have added expenses of hotel stay, and more, this new NICU will benefit so many.  If I can help by purchasing a ticket and making donations to this project along the way then I am happy to help give back.  If you live in Sacramento, I hope you will join me in giving back to our local community.  This is an easy way to give back.  Our local hospitals, Dr.’s, Nurses are amazing people making a difference everyday.  Purchase your tickets today! 

The concert is Friday, August 2nd, 2019, hosted by Sacramento Helping Hands Foundation the concert will be held 6331 Watt Avenue, North Highlands, CA 95660.

Raging Waters | Sacramento, CA

Looking for a way to stay cool and have fun this Summer? Our family loves going to Raging Waters! We have purchased Season Passes for over ten years.  It is a great way to beat the Sacramento summer heat and have fun all summer long. We love the water slides, wave pool, and when we want to chill our favorite spot is floating in the Calyspso Cooler Lazy River! The Treehouse Reef and Shark Pool are perfect for little ones.  Free life jackets are available throughout the park at no charge. Life jackets are required for guests under 48″ tall to use the wave pool.  

With a season pass, you also get free entrance to the California State Fair (July 12-July 28, 2019).  That is a huge benefit if you plan on attending the State Fair, spend a little more now purchase your Raging Waters Season Pass, and you receive BOTH entrance to the water park and the California State Fair, and this way you can enjoy the Fair more than one visit.

New this year is Celebrate Kid’s Day every Tuesday in June from 1- 3 PM, they have a variety of activities planned, Art in the Park, Rachel the Mermaid, Polynesian Princess and Spiderman, and Local Heroes Day.  Go to for more details. 
I know keeping the kids busy during summer vacation can be expensive.  Look for ways to save money they are out there.  One of our favorite ways to save on Raging Waters Season Passes is to purchase them during the Black Friday sale.  If you did not take part in that sale know they have a payment plan option as well as savings if you purchase 4 or more passes they are ONLY $30.99.  They have a Parking Pass for $49.99 which is a great savings. Note the parking pass is not valid during State Fair dates.  If you are going to go swimming weekly a parking pass is essential!
They have an All Season Dining Pass available which again pays for itself, they don’t allow outside food or drink except sealed water bottles so I encourage you to buy the dining pass and enjoy their food options all summer long. Prices for food are a higher at all amusement parks, with a little planning and preparation you can still save money.  With the Premium Pass you will receive some great coupons that will help you save on food purchases, you can also save when you purchase on-line.  I love the All Season Dining Pass, if you are unable to purchase the pass, eat lunch before you head into the park, then you can share one meal if needed or indulge in a sweet treat like the NEW Shaved Ice, or my kiddos favorite Dippin Dots and then eat dinner when you leave the park.  
We plan ahead of time and budget for our passes, parking pass, dining passes and souvenir cup. This is a great tip to keep in mind for next year, put a little bit of cash every month in an envelope for summer fun, then when summer comes you have designated funds set aside and it is easier on your monthly budget.  
With your All Season Dining Pass ($59.99) you receive a full meal with every visit.  They have a Carl’s Jr inside the park, NorCal Pizza next to Carl’s Jr, and near the Wave Pool is Beach Side BBQ which serves barbecue, chicken strips and more.  They have other fun treat options like Shaved Ice and Dippin Dots, not included with the Dining Pass. Some of my favorites are the BBQ Brisket Sandwich and Pulled Pork Nachos.  My boys love the NorCal Pizza, the slices are big enough to have them slice in two to share.  If you are going to frequent all summer long I recommend the UNLIMITED Refill Souvenir Cup for $27.99 (on-line), refills are only .99! 
There are private Cabana rentals available, that come with lounge chairs, a table and inner tubes.  You can reserve these on-line or at the park on a first come first serve basis.  We have not rented a Cabana we have never had a problem finding a lounge chair and area to relax, there are plenty of chairs and grassy spots to lay out a towel and enjoy the sunshine.
Be sure to bring sunscreen and hats.  I also recommend swim shoes, the cement gets extremely hot and when you are walking from the wave pool to a slide, those swim shoes come in handy.  There is a store inside the park in case you need sunscreen, or something else. 

Another item I love bringing is a waterproof phone pouch, not only for my phone but to carry my passes and cash/card.  On your season pass is a sticker for entry into the State Fair, you don’t want that sticker to get wet, they charge a small fee to reprint those stickers.  

There are lockers on site to rent to keep your belongings.  I try not bring anything of value, with my waterproof pouch I am able to carry my phone and cash, we have never felt the need to rent a locker. 

Raging Waters Sacramento is open DAILY.  View their calendar for this summers hours!
