Thee Fair to Remember

PLEASANTON

By Zoe Marshall

Where: Pleasanton.
When: June 15-July 4th.
Bring your: Childlike spirit.
Cash factor: Moderate.

If you’re the kind of guy who loves a good rollercoaster and fatty fair food, Swagoo Girls recommend you check out the Alameda County Fair. If you’re not the rollercoaster type, don’t fret- there are plenty of other fun things to do. You could be the classic chivalrous guy and win a stuffed animal or take a black and white photo strip (we love that sentimental stuff). Stop by the petting zoo, get your face painted, have a personalized silkscreen shirt made for her, or one of a million other options. They also have live music and art exhibits and awesome monster trucks or the demolition derby (if you’re into that sort of thing, but come on- who isn’t?). Your date likes betting? Head to the horse races. A cowgirl? Check out the extreme rodeo.

No matter what, you’ll undoubtedly find something here that you both enjoy. And hey- maybe you’ll even get stuck at the top of the Ferris wheel. The sky’s the limit here (almost literally). Wrap it up with a funnel cake, because you simply can’t go to a fair without getting a funnel cake. That’s just blasphemy.
