Fun Free(ish) Events in the East Bay this weekend. This week I am super excited about the start of the Alameda County Fair. Did you know that our County Fair is soooooo much longer than others? The other counties are like a weekend?!?! But we get three weeeeeeeks of fun!
The fair is near and dear to my heart. My kids raised livestock and did projects for the fair EVERY year for over a decade. It was always such a fun (and a rushed) time!
Please note: Some events require prior registration or tickets, so be sure to visit the website for full information.
This weekend is jam packed with tons of fun! Click on the event for more information.
