Original post made on Jul 12, 2012

More than 534,000 attendees visited the fair, an 18 percent increase from 2011, and is the largest recorded attendance in history, according to Fair organizers. In 2009, the Alameda County Fair was recognized as the fastest growing of more than 3,000 fairs in North America; its previous attendance record was 452,747 set in 2011.

Sad commentary that we here have to attend the Alameda County Fair versus our own in Antioch that has been taken over by gangs and thugs.

That's a bit of a stretch, ain't it, Grumpy? Cuppa joe will fix you right up.

I completely agree with you-William---cardinal is a lib apologist. Years ago the Alameda Fair made the MISTAKE of dedicating each day to a county city. You can imagine what happened when "Oakland" day came up. Gangs, hoochie mamas, disgusting language and behavior. Fair was shut down early when weapons and fights broke out. The fair no longer dedicates days and installed higher security requirements. San Mateo Fair has gone gang for years now---nortenos! No no viva Mexico todos!!

Aw Michael, I have nothing for which to apologize -- you're the one who left off the "g."
