Funny thing about numbers, they can be contradictory and accurate at the same time.
The community of Wildomar is 130 years old, but the city has only been incorporated for 8.
To help celebrate the city's birthday, the tradition of ringing the old school bell at Wildomar Elementary, was instituted from the start.
Kristan Lloyd, of the Wildomar Historical Society, was the master of ceremonies and warmed up the modest crowd before handing over the mic to Councilmember Bob Cashman.

There will be a high end Beach Boy's cover band, a car show, a beer garden for the adults, and plenty to keep you entertained. People will start showing up around 5:00pm, so don't dawdle too much. See the flyer for more info.
Below is a video of the bell ringing from 2014. This is what it sounded like then and now... and believe me, it's LOUD!
