Placer County Fair Starts Tomorrow

Imagine a cow driving a NASCAR race car towards the finish line located at the main gate of the Placer County Fair, while a goat enthusiastically waves a checkered flag perched at the highest point on the nostalgic Ferris Wheel. This year, the 2012 Placer County Fair theme is “Race to the Fair."

The goal is to promote both the Fair and the NASCAR track, the “All American Speedway.” As you walk around the fair, you will notice the racing theme blended with the traditional aspects of a county fair.

Delicious fair treats, both fried as well as more health conscious options will be available to tempt any palate, while patrons can enjoy browsing the varied vendors selling unique wares.

Entertainment is a focal point for 2012, as they are bringing a large draw “Grandstand” event each day of the Fair. Thursday night they will showcase a big name concert. Friday there will be a Mixed Martial Arts bout, and they have  matched two Heavy Weight title bouts. Saturday they will have a big NASCAR Sanctioned Points Race.  Sunday there will be a 200 Lap Enduro. What’s an Enduro? It’s a 200 lap endurance race on a Soapy Track;  it’s basically a demolition derby on a circle track!

Thursday is Senior Day; free admission for those 60+. Friday is Corporate Day; all employees of all fair sponsors get free admission.  Saturday is Service Day; active military and a guest get free admission. Sunday is Kids Day; kids get free admission.
