Great weather this weekend for the Sacramento County Fair

We all know how miserable hot days can be for attending fairs and events at CalExpo. You can rejoice, though, as this weekend promises to be very nice weather to take the family to the fair.

The fair starts today and runs through Memorial Day. Some of the fair fun you can enjoy includes over 40 free events, performances & activities every day of the fair! Fair admission is only $6 and children 12-and-under are admitted free every day!

Deep fried chocolate covered marshmallows, S'mores funnel cake,
Deep fried oatmeal cookie. Chocolate covered frozen cheesecake, 
At a media event last night we got to try some latest fair food and check out some of the attractions. You can see some of the sweet treats above, but I have to give a shout out  to the Elote corn we tried from Noel's Food. That was the winner of our taste contest in the savory category. Very good! The cheesecake above from The Ice Cream Company won the sweet category.
