Marin's County Fair Kicks Off Today!

Because we really can't get enough of the yee-haw-inducing fun that is a county fair, we're announcing the kick-off of yet another one today! This time, you'll find all the fun up north at the five-day-strong Marin County Fair. While there won't be an Ugliest Dog Contest (à la the Sonoma-Marin fair last week), there are some similarly awesome going-ons including the 3rd Annual Baby Derby in which infants will try to out-crawl one another, an artsy short-film festival, sustainable gardening demos, lots of food contests, performances by The Pointer Sisters and The Temptations, Shangri-La Chinese acrobats, and numerous folks from the storied Star Wars costuming club The 501st Legion, who will be ready to strike a pose with visitors. And, of course, this being July 4th weekend, expect pretty fireworks, as well. For more on all the events, head over here and to mark your calendar for future county fair fun, check out this roundup on the best coming to the Bay.
When: Thursday, June 30, through Monday, July 4
Where: Marin County Fair, 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael.
