Local fair gets recognition

The 2006 Alameda County Fair brought home 43 awards from the West Fairs Association's 84th annual awards convention in January recently. The fair had submitted 50 entries for consideration.

"The (Alameda County Fair) excels in developing training materials and programs that improve the fair industry," noted TJ Thomas, achievement award coordinator, in her congratulatory letter.

Among the areas recognized was the fair's Radio and Television Advertising Campaigns. The commercials were so popular that fairs across the country requested a copy in order to inspire their ad agencies. Four of the awards were for its 2006 fair agricultural and marketing programs.

The 2007 Alameda County Fair, which will be its 95th anniversary, will run this year from June 22 through July 8.
