FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 27, 2013
Watsonville, CA – The 2013 Santa Cruz County Fair theme is, drum roll please, “Cowboy Boots and Country Roots.” The theme was submitted by Sierra Hermosillo of Salinas, a 16 year old fan of the Fair. In addition to showing animals in the past she also enjoys entering her crafts.
Cowboy Boots and Country Roots may be the theme but the philosophy guiding the planning of the 2013 fair is “Make it new and interesting.” That philosophy was even extended to the way in which this year’s theme was selected.
Traditionally the Fair board of directors chose the theme from amongst those submitted by members of the community. The list of more than fifty suggestions still came from the community but the board asked the Fair department heads to meet and select this year’s rallying point. “After all they’re the ones who work most closely with the theme” said board member Don Dietrich.
Young Miss Hermosillo will receive tickets to the 2013 Fair for herself and her family plus all the fame associated with her theme’s selection.
The Santa Cruz County Fair celebrates the rich agricultural history of our community and people, and invests heavily in bringing this heritage to our youth. The 2013 Fair will be held September 10 - 15 at the Fairgrounds located on Highway 152 just east of Watsonville. Information on the Fair, and the Fairgrounds - a year round entertainment and event venue, can be found at www.santacruzcountyfair.com
