For the fifth year, the Gladden Farms Community Association presents its "Country Fair," a day of family fun, this Saturday, Oct. 16.

It runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Stone Gate Park off Gladden Farms Drive in Marana.

There is live entertainment, including jazz by Gazpacho and ska music courtesy of 8 Big Boom; food, face painting, a bounce house and slide, a kiddie train, a small Ferris wheel, the popular Gyro-Orbitron, a rock wall, vendors and more. Guests can get a slice of pizza from Papa Murphy's Take n' Bake or a BBQ hotdog, courtesy of DLC Resources.

People who play "Blackout Vendor Bingo" can turn in their cards for a chance at a $50 raffle.

An unlimited ride wristband is available for $5. Hot dog lunches and small children's rides are available on a per ticket basis. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5.

"Gladden Farms continues to be a thriving neighborhood full of residents who enjoy the lifestyle living in Marana brings," said Kristina Allen, lifestyle director for Capital Consultants Management Corp. "This event is a wonderful tradition amongst the residents of Gladden Farms and we hope everyone can join us."

The event is put together with the help of DLC Resources, Richmond American Homes, Post's Feed and Supply and the Town of Marana.
