The Alameda County Fair Proudly Celebrates Turning 100: 1912 - 2012. This year's Centennial celebration includes the return of the downtown Pleasanton Parade, a brand new concert format, and a variety of distinctive memorabilia chronicling its 100 year history.
The Alameda County Fair in California. Corn dogs, American as apple pie, now cry out for attention as diets continue to evolve. For decades, my sister and then my parents have entered crafts, poetry, and livestock in the county fair. I've always attended and appreciate this small part of Americana that lives on to this day.
