Yelp is more popular in urban areas than around here, but I was curious about what last year’s county fairgoers had to say about their experience on Yelp. This year’s fair is coming up on August 12-16.
Here’s some of the unfiltered and modestly edited comments:
•”I just went to the fair again this year this year, luv it. Again, go during the day (around 11 a.m.) and there will be less crowds and weirdos (well, it’s *ss valley, there will always be a few nutsos roaming about lol) but you know what I mean.”
—Mary C., San Jose
•”Oy! What a hillbilly-hippie fest! Walk along the midway and watch the meth-heads crawl out from under their rocks as the night falls. Watch as clusters of sheriff’s deputies search the crowd for ‘evil-doers’ and people off probation.”
—James B., Grass Valley
•”The prettiest fairgrounds I have ever seen! Shady from the big ponderosa pines and always nice crisp evenings. Have to try a cornish pastie!”
—Justin P., San Francisco
•So I am probably biased as this is my home county fair, but it really is the best in Ca. The grounds are so pretty, the food vendors are all local groups, the animals are cute and the giant cinnamon roll vendor is always there for an *ss-expanding treat.
