The Alameda County Fair 2017

The 2017 Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton is underway and I couldn’t be happier! It’s always one of the highlights of summer to me. The Fair kicked off with an old fashioned Texas cattle drive through Downtown Pleasanton. Last fall I visited the Pleasanton Fairgrounds. They were lonely and empty; it was like a ghost town. It’s a lot more fun out here in the summertime.

Went to the county fair and a Giants baseball game broke out! (In reference to the bench clearing brawl between Hunter Strickland of the Giants and Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals on May 29th) The little white one looks like it’s trying to be a mediator.
