Some 600-700 toured wind farms, while others watched boomerang displays, sky divers, kites and gliders, says Paul Gipe of the Kern Wind Energy Association. The entire event was reportedly the largest in Tehachapi in years.
Zond Systems Inc, a co-sponsor along with Southern California Edison, local businesses and most of the area's wind power industry, also unveiled its new Z-40 wind turbine for the Tehachapi community. Children took full advantage of the expanded playground with its now familiar wind turbine blade slide and play houses fashioned from decorated wind turbine nose cones. Clowns, mimes, trick horseback riders, and others entertained children of all ages throughout the weekend. Employees of area wind companies including Cannon, Difko, SeaWest, and Zond volunteered thousands of hours of staff time to insure the event's success. In addition to the annual hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, the 94 Wind Fair also sponsored a horse ride from the fair grounds at the local sail plane port to the wind turbines lining the ridge east of this mountain hamlet.
The fourth annual Wind Fair will be held May 20-21, 1995.
