The California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta will begin its 10-day run Friday and we expect a lot of good things from this year's fair.
As always, the fair offers 10 days of family entertainment. And while there is not a lot new this year, we think that is because the fair has built a strong foundation over the past few years. The Plaza de la Cultura, Ag County USA, the gem and mineral building and the discovering science exhibit are among the displays that form the core of each year's fair and all are well worth the visit. Each year the displays are upgraded to be better than ever, and this year looks to be no exception.
The entertainment includes Mark Chesnutt, Freddy Fender and Steppenwolf, and each is likely to draw a good crowd. Auto racing returns to the fair this year and there will be the inaugural car-hopping contest. A new hypnotist, a sand-castle display and a group of acrobats are among other entertainment highlights.
