Alameda County Fair – California’s Golden Fairs (109)

Huell visits the Alameda County Fair which originated in 1859 in downtown Oakland as a Floral Fair. The first modern-day Fair in Pleasanton began in 1912, and has been held annually (with the exception of the war years) ever since. The Fair’s race track is the oldest one-mile horse racing track in America, dating back to 1858 and is still a highlight of this award-winning fair.
