Bay Area’s largest county fair turns 100

Monday, June 18, 2012

That’s a race from the opening day of the Alameda County Fair in 1912. The fair gets underway Wednesday (through July 8) at the fairgrounds in Pleasanton. Contra Costa Times has a story and slide show. Photo is from the collection of Richard McCarthy.
