Along with giant pumpkins, there’s excitement in the Agriculture Horticulture department. The Fair Harvest Building is filled with entries and exhibits, besides being packed with children eager to eat carrots that are handed out. Department head, Gina Locatelli couldn’t be happier with this year’s outcome.

“The entries are up 20% from last year,” explains Locatelli who added “The giant pumpkins numbers have doubled with 24 entered this year.” The berry growers of the county also stepped up to donate a huge display of berries. Local produce growers have also increased their participation by 25%. From plate entries to an essay contest, growth can be across the board. Youth and senior organic entries have increased, and Locatelli predicts they will have exceeded the non-organic entries by next year.

Watsonville, CA:  Saturday September 15th brings our littlest fans to the Santa Cruz County Fair as a swarm of babies get ready, set, and go in the Diaper Derby. The races will start at 11:30 am at Paddy Smith Park on the Fairgrounds.

The speedy babies will start on one side and race to the finish line 18 feet away where a parent is waiting for them. Racing babies can crawl, scoot, or pull themselves along any way they can to get to the finish line the fastest, as parents are calling, cheering, cooing, or shaking toys. The child that crosses the finish line to reach their parent first wins. The Diaper Derby first place winning child will receive a trophy and a $25.00 certificate from Jelly Beans. Second and third place prizes include money, a gift certificate to Little People Store, books, and a gift card from Crossroads Books. To enter the Diaper Derby, children must be less than a year old.
