Cattle Drives, World’s Ugliest Dog at June Fairs in California

Published on: June 02, 2017


The month-long San Diego County Fair launched softly on June 2, 2017 but thundered a day later as 200 head of cattle stomped through Gaslamp Quarter to announce the fair’s arrival. Holy Cow!  Cattle Drive fans can catch a similar event at Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton on June 16.
