Come to the Santa Cruz County Fair on Wednesday September 12, 2012 for Kid’s Day. The Fair opens at noon and kids under 11 get in free. From livestock to a hypnotist, fairgoers of all ages will have a blast at the Fair.

Children and their families will be able to participate in the Education Day demonstrations at Yesterday’s Farm and Mr. Magorium’s Exploratorium starting at 9 am. Yesterday’s Farm is produced by the Agricultural History Project, and volunteers help show how farms were once run. Kids can learn how to make wheat flour, milk a cow, ride a hay wagon, and see how to spin yarn. This year Yesterday’s Farm will feature the restored railroad caboose, as well as a Hops exhibit, bringing to life how this important ingredient in beer was once grown here in the Pajaro Valley. Tractors and other farm equipment will be on display, along with a team of draft horses.

Watsonville, CA – Orchids are lovingly placed in the Orchid House, livestock of all breeds, sizes, and calls are being watched over by their young minders, the new Heritage Hall is ready to serve first time patrons from its historic bar, and the grounds are absolutely gorgeous.

All the activity is set to peak about noon this coming Tuesday as the Santa Cruz County Fair opens.  Interim fair manager Dave Kegebein was last seen out in Yesterday’s Farm helping his father, the legendary John Kegebein, move an antique tractor.  He then had to dash off to the new pizza shack to deal with an electrical problem.  Just another day of solving little problems to make sure that coming to the Fair will be what it always has been, a late summer afternoon and evening filled with family fun.

Watsonville, CA – “At this point in the year I did not expect to be in as good a shape as we are” explained Dave Kegebein, Interim Fair Manager.  He added “The tireless efforts of the volunteer management team, selfless uncounted hours of work by members of the community, and the generous financial support of sponsors, The Heritage Foundation and newly formed ‘Friends of the Fair’ account in large part for the improvement.”

Patrice Edwards, who along with Jeannie Kegebein and fair board member Bruce Oneto, helped form Friends of the Fair.  She reported recently that the group has raised over $16,000 in a relatively short period of time.
