Sacramento County Fair
Thursday, May 23 through Monday, 5/27, Cal Expo, $8
Time to show your pride for the rootin’est, tootin’est state subdivision around—Sacramento County. That’s right, the County Fair is back for another year of fun! Here are some reasons to show up: 1. There are monster trucks, the famous oversized vehicles. 2. There’s livestock hanging out, 24/7. 3. There are duck races, the organized kind. 4. There is music, food, rides and entertainment galore. That last reason is sort of a catch-all for the various things you ought to expect. 1600 Exposition Boulevard, sacfair.com.
