ONE Coconut Water will be providing coconut water at the fair! At every stage of our lives, there are times when we become dehydrated causing us to lose electrolytes found in our body. We need to replace fluids and electrolytes regularly to help avoid headaches, muscle cramping, and fatigue. Coconut water contains some of the same electrolytes found in blood, and is a good source of Potassium. Throughout history, coconut water has been used to prevent and treat dehydration — and it has been shown to be more effective than plain water for hydrating. O.N.E. Coconut Water is refreshing and delicious, and is a nutritional powerhouse, too (just see its nutrition label!).

Trader Joe's has donated water to the fair. From their website: "It all started in the 50s... Would you believe we started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It's true. Way back in 1958. We were called Pronto Markets. In '67, our founder, the original Trader Joe, changed our name (yes, to Trader Joe's) and the way we do business. We made the stores bigger (if you can imagine), decked the walls with cedar planks and donned our crew in cool Hawaiian shirts. Most importantly, we started putting innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods in the "Trader Joe's" name. That cut our costs and saved you money. Still does."

From their website: Inland Empire Brewing Company was formed in 2007 by three longtime friends. We had all been home brewers for approximately five years prior to stumbling upon a really good deal on some used 7 BBL brewing equipment. We all three decided that we had what it takes to go big, and sell our beer to the public! After about two years of work with government agencies, permitting and construction, we opened our doors to the public on February 20th, 2009! While we are now down to two owners, we continue to grow at a comfortable pace. We've recently (early 2012) added four 15 BBL state of the art conicoal fermenters, which has improved fermentation times, consistency and quality. We are also working on new projects, yet to be announced.
