Good times at Alameda County Fair!!

This year at Alameda County Fair,  AGademics had a great time with our Barn Tour program and  Farm Planet Educational interactive center were all BIG hits with the fair goers. We had non stop tours, tons of daily prizes given away, and people learning new things about agriculture. The interaction with the public was so much fun and such a positive experience. On kids day we had the public make thank you postcards to the local farmers for them providing the animals and their meals. Not only did the kids love it but the adults loved it has well. We of course are mailing them to the local producers of Alameda County to say thank you.  Our tours were a HIT once again, we had some of largest tours on the weekends. We gave away some great prizes (baseball caps) and had many laughs watching those playing Plinko and Cornhole. Thanks to one of our tour guides Frances for her genius idea of having the question of the day at the AGademics interactive tent which made the public think and come talk to the other tour guides at the tent for the answer to the question. The voice of the fair Jason was amazing in that he announced the Ag fact of the day to the fair all day over the loud speakers while he was promoting us as well as other entertainers. I think Jason loves the Ag facts of the day as much as we do. We loved the 17 days we spent at Alameda County Fair and can't wait til next year.
