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.

The gates open at noon on Tuesday, September 11, with $4.00 admission for seniors at the gate and service members invited in for free with military ID.

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 2012 Fair will be held September 11 - 16 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
