Scrambling for Eggs

It is only fitting for the community that produces 652.5 million eggs a year to pay homage to its ubiquitous huevos. That is just what Ramona is doing with its second annual Egg Festival and Street Fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday on California 78 between 8th and 6th streets.

Among the festivities is the "Scrambler" contest for children 8 to 16 years old, beginning at 11 a.m. in front of the Ramona Town Hall. Children are issued uncooked eggs and are responsible for designing a vehicle to get their egg safely down a 20-foot-high free-fall drop.

Eggs are then judged for soundness after impact, design and creativity of the contraption used for the egg. Winners in each group will receive AM-FM radio/tape players provided by the Ramona Revitalization Assn.

Besides the egg activities, fair-goers will find music, arts, crafts and food vendors from all over Southern California. There will also be a vintage fire equipment display.
