The 2015 San Benito County Fair

Cowboy Boots and Local Roots! 

That's the theme of the 2015 San Benito County Fair, which is a four day affair this year. It starts this Thursday, October 1, and ends on Sunday, October 4. Thursday through Saturday, the fair's hours are from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 7.p.m. The carnival opens at noon on all four days. 

10 Things I Look Forward to at this Year's County Fair

1. Viewing the beautiful crafted and creative quilts.
2. Visiting the goats, baaaaa, and chickens, bwak, bwak, bwak.
3. Looking at the art entries by students from the various elementary schools.
4. Checking out the agricultural displays. 

5. Listening to Mr. O's Jazz Band in the patio.
6. Riding the free shuttle bus to the fair.
7. Guessing how much the rock weighs at Graniterock's booth.
8. Eating!

9. Cheering on the All-Alaskan racing pigs. 
10. Wandering around the fair with the Husband, simply enjoying ourselves.

  1. It's so amazing how big pumpkins can grow! Hello from a native Prunepicker! Saw you at Our World today! Will follow!

  2. Never seen a pig race but a very good action shot. I like it.

    1. You'd be surprised how fast they can run and jump over the hurdles.

  3. The pumpkins draw me in. I missed out country fair this year, but I did grow some pumpkins.

    1. Hurrah for growing pumpkins. I have yet to get one to grow. I would love to grow a gigantic one. Maybe when the drought is over.
