I know that the Sacramento Jazz
Jubilee is the big draw this weekend, but I am partial to the Sacramento County Fair for family friendly Memorial Day Weekend activities. Admission for kids is free, and adults are only $3, so it’s a steal of a deal, and it also lacks the big crowds of Big Fun.
This year features some awesomely weird entertainment, like a Demolition Derby and Lucha Libre wrestling, in addition to the more wholesome entertainment of watching and smelling animals that were raised by local kids, which are also available for purchase (the livestock, that is) at auction. And if your tolerance for being near carnies is high carnies, you can always sample the rides on the midway.
Or you can pay $35 and see Molly Ringwald. Your choice, Sacramento.
