Coming Soon to Sacramento! May 23-27 Sacramento County Fair

At my house we have a few annual events that we have to attend. Its just tradition to go and it would not be the same to not attend. One of those events is the Sacramento County Fair!!! We love the animals, the shows, the rides, the food and spending time together. 

Our top favorite thing to do at the fair is look at all the animals. My husband has family members that participated in the 4H programs as kids and we do have our "one day" plan to have a little farm with animals so I think its wonderful to have our son see the livestock and the junior handlers. We learn something new each year we attend. My son has been talking about sheep and piggies ever since I told him the fair was coming.

Making memories is what a County Fair is all about! Its hard to pick one day to go since each day is full of new attractions. I love that the price is only $5 for adults and kids 12 and under are FREE! Another SUPER Duper awesome part of the Sacramento County Fair is that it is a Smoke Free Fair, that means no smoking allowed inside the fair gates, gotta love a fair with just fair food in the air! :)
