63rd Annual Grubstake Day Community Fair
Saturday, May 25, 2013
Because of construction planned near the Yucca Valley Community Center, this years event will be centered around the Hi-Desert Boys and Girls Club, the Tri-Valley Little League fields and Brehm Sports Park on Little League Drive in Yucca Valley between Palm and Grand Avenues, North of State Route 62. This years event will be bigger and better, bringing in new partners, more events, and marking the opening of the Miracle League Park, designed for the disabled to play team and individual sports.
