Thank goodness the Alameda County Fair was held these last two weeks and not these past two day- it's sooo hot! There were so many people at the fair this year, compared to that of last year. I think that it's because of the economy. Nobody wants to go out on vacation or travel. So, where better to go than one's own hometown fair?! Well, that's what I did and earned money! I worked at the Lottery Booth as a cashier and they were exciting times. Someone won 1000 dollars on a scratcher! Then there were little 300 dollar winners here and there! It's amazing! I felt really happy for them when they won big!! Besides those wonderful events, there were other attractions and vendors there! One was a speedpainter! He used spray cans and created beautiful art, to his music in under 3 minutes! The color scheme was amazing and his imagination was incredible! I'm so glad I got a chance to witness that! Of course, there was also horseracing, the main attraction, livestock, shows, concerts( Fastball, comedians, actors, etc.), and rides, and of course the FOOD( funnel cake, garlic fries, hot dog, ) though I must confess, food there is expensive.... anyway, I encourage anyone who has not gone to a fair to go!! It's so much fun especially when you go with friends or family! You don't want to miss out!
