The 2023 edition of the popular Stanislaus County Fair opened for its 10-day run on Friday, July 7 and continues through Sunday, July 16. Each day features a variety of specialty acts, musical entertainment, displays and exhibits, rides, games, fair food and beverage options, and more. BMX races, Monster trucks, a PRCA Rodeo, and popular hypnotist Suzy Haner are also among the returning favorites. Action in the first few days included kids taking a spin on one of the many midway rides; The Drumheads, a group that entertained the crowd here on Saturday afternoon, with those photos courtesy of Candy Padilla; and a group of Oakdale FFA members ready to show their goats in the competition ring, photo courtesy of Jeff Kettering.
