Annual Fair Getaway

Pleasanton, CA, United States
19 Kudos
The Alameda County Fair is an annual tradition for us. Our entire family has a blast when we go to the fair. Animals, rides, shows like monster trucks and hypnotists, kid play areas, pig races, shopping, the lemonade, and the awesome food. My kids love the animals. You can see goats, pigs, cows, sheep, and there is always a cow and/or pig that will give birth during the fair, which is so amazing. If you miss the birth of the babies, you can always see the day old babies running around in the pen. You'll find discounts on Groupon for parking and tickets.
