    Love your entries I remember going to the Alameda County fair when I was a kid and in my teens. It was so long ago that the Livermore Valley was grazing land.....no housing additions. Is it still being held in Livermore?

    Your entries are very nice! The deep red/burgundy is pretty. I loved going to the Alameda Cty Fair when we lived in Pleasanton. That is where I first saw the Elna Carina that I own. Great memories!

    My daughter and son-in-law live in Dublin, CA. Will be visiting in November --- their first baby is due in October. The name of the fair caught my eye.
