Dixon Tribune’s Facebook Notes
Brianna Boyd, Editor
The Dixon May Fair and Solano College’s art department are teaming up to bring two new events to the 137th annual fair.
Then, on May 11 and May 12, local artists and Solano County school groups will create large-scale printmaking projects in the Solano Steamroller Smackdown. The, 12-ton black and white steamroller will be rolling through the fair and spinning inky imagery created by participants. All prints and t-shirts produced will be for sale, with proceeds benefiting the college’s art department.
Bounds joined the May Fair’s team almost a year ago and focused his time on bringing more educational components to the fair. Other plans for this year’s fair include a super science room with hands-on activities for children, and the “I Built a Bridge” competition between area high schools. The May Fair is collaborating with Solano County Office of Education on the bridge contest, which will test students’ abilities to construct bridges using Popsicle sticks.
