The third annual RAMFEST was held at Prado Park in Chino, California on Saturday, July 15. Despite the event being a little on the smaller scale, and the promotion somewhat limited, approximately 3,000 Rams fans came together to form one giant “Ramily.”
The vibes of this year’s RAMFEST was familiar; it was the same vibes as at the tailgates this past season, at last year’s RAMFEST or any other So Cal Rams Booster Club event, and that is the sense of Ramily. To avoid sounding too “cheesy” or “corny,” I’ve been to gatherings involving other local professional teams such as the Lakers or the Dodgers, and families are more isolated and don’t share the same sense of brother/sisterhood.
To provide a better perspective, when my group first arrived to the event, we were greeted by friendly faces that joked with us until we found our destination. It wasn’t the only occurrence either, I often walk around by myself to cover the event more in-depth, but to my pleasant surprise, I was hardly alone. Other groups would pull me into their groups to offer me irresistible tailgate food or a refreshing “cold one.” Yes, I am ready for the season. Are you?
