Weekender: This Weekend’s Top Five Events

Happy summer, y’all. And by that we mean you’re probably wearing at least one sweater right now. At any rate, here’s some HOT FUN IN THE SUN for your Weekending pleasure:

Alameda County Fair
Last year, the Alameda County Fair made the Guinness World Records for producing the world’s largest “commercially available” hamburger (it weighed in at a whopping 777 pounds). This year marks a less caloric (though no less weighty) landmark for the annual fete: the fair’s centennial. Festivities are already well underway at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, but you can still catch sundry special events on this, the fair’s final weekend, as well as all the barbecued, battered, and fried delights that keep us coming back each year. Fri.-Sun. 10 a.m.-10 p.m. $6-$10, free for kids under six. 925-426-7559 or AlamedaCountyFair.comCassie McFadden
