Watsonville, CA - As Fair visitors walk over to the livestock area, most probably expect to see pigs, cattle, sheep, goats, and other familiar fair animals. But camels? New to the Santa Cruz County Fair, visitors will have the chance to ride these animals that are normally found in the desert.

For $5 per person, Fairgoers will be able to take two laps around a track with the camels. The track will be located between the Pig Race Track and the Livestock Show Arena. The ride includes an opportunity to stop for a photo op. Two or three people can ride one of the camels at a time, depending on the amount of space available on the saddle. The weight of the riders does not matter much, as camels are incredibly strong beasts of burden. In fact, one camel is capable of carrying half of its body weight!

Watsonville, CA – With roots back to the early days of Fairs in Santa Cruz County, the Apple Pie Contest Kicked off the 2013 Santa Cruz County Fair deliciously on Tuesday.  The first local fairs in the 1800’s were known as Apple Annuals and that tie to the Pajaro Valley’s history is alive and well in the pride bakers bring to the modern Fair each year.

After all the judging, the contest, which is sponsored by the Santa Cruz Farm Bureau, announced winners in three divisions.

Watsonville, CA – Or more accurately, the Fairgrounds is getting unwired.  Doron Brenner, the Fair’s IT Manager, explains “A new Wi-Fi network is being built out to cover all of the main buildings and much of the outdoor area.  Fairgoers will be able to log in and check Facebook, the Fair schedule, their email or anything else they normally do when connected.”

The upgraded internet access will be available to guests at no charge and is part of the improvements being made throughout the grounds to infrastructure, buildings and equipment.
