Fair Time is Fun Time!


Normally we wouldn’t give you the scoop about upcoming events going down in Sonoma County until later in the week. But this isn’t any normal week the Sonoma-Marin Fair starts today at the Petaluma fairgrounds.

My family has always referred to the fair with the above title. This is our half-truth half mocking of the fair. As a youngster I was apart of the local 4-H and would bring beef cattle to show. There are always trials and tribulations when dealing with stubborn beef cattle in 100° weather. The fair for my family always brought some bad memories because of this fact, but overall we have great memories of family and friends from our experience at the fair.

If you and your family have nothing else to do this weekend then spend some time at the fair and enjoy yourselves. It has a little something for everyone. If you’re into music check out any of the free concerts that play every night. I might be out there for Joan Jett on Friday night. Always a fan favorite in town, Petaluma Pete will be there too.

Also, be sure to check out the Worlds Ugliest Dog® Contest on Friday.  Or simply just go for the great fried food. Don’t forget about the wine tasting for you adults. Be sure to check out the livestock animals as well.  The Sonoma-Marin Fair is just great family fun that everyone can enjoy.

Heck maybe Larry or I will see you there. We’ll be the ones with a beer and corndog in our hands.
