  1. Hi jen kalb,

    Is this the one you're talking about? I didn't go but it appears as though it happened in June:

    1. Hi again jen kalb,

      I guess the festival I mentioned in my previous post is not the church one.

      However, according to the facebook page of the Myanmar Baptist Church (the Fun Fair Church), they are now in a different location. Where, you might ask? According to their facebook page they are now in... Glendale!

      Alas, the facebook page gives no details of any fun fair at this time. I guess Glendale's just not that much fun. Oh well...

      Ciao,

      Glendale is hungry...

        They have been holding it at a former church location in Briarwood for years even tho the church location changed long ago. their website doesnt mention the event either, but its never been given prominence. hmm

      2. Heard or read somewhere -- of course now I can't find it -- that it was going to be in September this year. Has not happened yet, anyhow.

        1. The 2012 Myanmar Baptist Church Fun Fair has been pushed back to September, perhaps October. The date, and a new location, are still to be announced.
