California's Great America Update - June 12th, 2022
Red White & Brews and All American Corners Updates
Red White and Brews is back for the first time since 2019! It brings back all of the fun of the event a couple of years ago. But it's not the only new thing this month. We also have some exciting new updates from All American Corners and of course some misc updates from around that park!
Red White and Brews is back! Like before it takes place in Hometown Square
Let's walk through some of what the event brings!
Of course, the event is still focused around food
You can buy a tasting card or you can buy tastings individually
The booths are set up throughout the area
The Brew Bike is my favorite part of the event
I definitely want to do this at one point
But there is plenty of other entertainment around the area, starting with live music
The stage is set up at the front of Great America Theater
But the gazebo in the square is also used
People were really getting into the music!
There are a handful of games throughout the area. Like cornhole
Or pick a pig
There are arts and crafts and temporary tattoos available for kids
And there are plenty of photo ops
Characters are roaming around
And finally, there are souvenirs available too!
Over at the Liberty Twirler site we see not a ton of progress on the outside with the walls still up
Looking at the site, some ground work has been done but not too much. Like I've said in the past, this ride won't take a ton of time to get done but it needs to be done eventually!
Orbit still has its sign out front...
But so much more has changed! The cars are finally back on and they look amazing
The area in front of the ride is blocked off to allow for workers to access the cars
And workers are indeed getting the ride ready
I can't imagine it would take much longer than another month to get this ride running again
So glad to see progress on this ride finally! Its opening can't get here soon enough!
Finally, at the old Game Time restaurant something is happening
New paint job and railings out front. Can't wait to see what becomes of this restaurant
Not bad, only two rides down today!
Drop Tower is open again!
Action Zone isn't the same without it
South Bay Shores is open again! Looks great and is as crowded as ever. I look forward to getting to visit soon
Couldn't resist taking pictures of the cute ducks in the park
This mother had all her babies with her. Very cute!
And that will wrap up our update today! I always enjoy when the park puts on festivals and it was good to see an old favorite like Red White and Brews back. I look forward to seeing what comes of all of the All American Corners work as well. We'll be back in July as the park brings Carnivale to Northern California!
