Music, barbecue and carnival rides are keeping the crowds entertained this weekend at Fontana Days, a four-day festival that ends Sunday, June 2.

Fontana Days, sponsored by The Exchange Club of Fontana, opened Thursday to once again raise funds to enrich the lives of young people. According to the club, the festival began in 1953 as a way to provide scholarships to Fontana Unified School District’s seven high schools, support youth sports and activities, and collaborate with the law enforcement agencies of the city to fund youth-oriented programs such as the Fontana Leadership Intervention Program (FLIP).
