Alameda County Fair

Pin It Now!
We have not been to the fair in several years because... well because it costs a million dollars. This year we decided to meet some friends there. We spent $53 in about 3 hours. And the kids only went on ZERO rides and our friends picked up are tickets to get in the gates($2 a person).
Here is the breakdown.
Parking in someone's yard $13

Clown Show where Lydia surprisingly (seriously) volunteered to go on stage: FREE

Pony Ride (really what we came for): $6

Looking at animals: FREE

Petting animals: FREE

Feeding animals: $5 (2 ice cream cones with pellets)

Kneeling down in animal poop: FREE

Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Cones: $5 each (3 of them and so worth it)

Cheap Strawberry Shortcake doll that Dad bought for daughter who loved it so much (for 5 minutes): $6

Music Show: FREE

Spiderman jumpy house/slide thingy: $3

Balloon Darts: $5

Family photo that truly captures Mom's shortness: FREE
Seriously, am I that short? Yes.
