The Fair is Coming to Town!
Daily Republic staff
VALLEJO - Ten days of corn dogs, carnival rides, farm animals and two major concerts begin today at the annual Solano County Fair.
"Hot fun in the summer time" is the theme for the fair, which runs through July 23 at the fairgrounds, located near the intersection of Interstate 80 and Highway 37.
The doors open at 11 a.m. daily and the fair closes at 11 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children 6-12, service members with ID cards and seniors. Service members in uniform and children 5 and younger are free. Admission is $2 every day before 2 p.m. and parking is $6.
The fair begins with a bang tonight, hosting a demolition derby in the sports arena. That starts at 6:30 p.m. and requires a special $15 ticket, which includes admission. On Saturday night, there will be PBR bullriding and on Sunday there is a Fiesta del Charro rodeo at the sports arena. There also will be fireworks each night.
The entertainment highlights of the fair are concerts by Raven Symone and Gladys Knight on July 20 and July 21, respectively. Tickets are available on line at www.scfair.com and at the fair box office. There will also be other concerts, as well as free entertainment every day.
Horse racing began on Wednesday and continues through the end of the fair, except for Monday and Tuesday.
