Alameda County Fair 

When: Tuesdays-Thursdays, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and Fridays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Continues through July 7 2013
Price: $4-$10, children under 6 free

It's nigh impossible not to love the county fair, with its tractor pulls, amusment-park rides, pig races, goat auctions, "diaper derby" (fastest baby wins), and myriad cooking contests for dishes as diverse as gumbo and cake pops. It's a weird cultural mainstay, particularly in urban Alameda County -- a remnant of a time when so many entertainment options weren't available at our fingertips -- but that's also what makes it great. The Alameda County Fair, now in its 101st year, returns on Wednesday, June 19, at the Alameda County Fairgrounds (4501 Pleasanton Ave., Pleasanton).
