For more than 50 years, wheels have rolled across the hardwood rink at the original Rollerama on 34th Street. People who learned how to skate there as children—or shared a first kiss at the rink's edge—can now bring their own children to make new memories. The sport itself seems as popular as ever, given the crowds that routinely show up to glide around on rented skates and leisurely practice their triple axels. Both of Rollerama's current locations offer plenty of open skate times, along with classic food options such as pizza and hot dogs.

The annual Kern County Fair brings families together to marvel at a host of educational attractions, livestock exhibits, and seven stages of live music spread across 168 scenic acres. Visitors study the fair's schedule to make sure they don't miss the mind puzzling tricks performed by quick-handed magicians or the untamed heroics of a pro BMX stunt team. Shout out words of encouragement to Alaskan pigs as they race around a track and exchange gobble-gobbles with a flock of turkeys to defuse Thanksgiving-related tension.

Crunching metal and the sweet smell of burning rubber prevail as the Monster X Tour invades the Ocean Center, thrilling all ages in an action-packed motorsports showcase. Bigfoot, the forefather of all station-wagon smashers, leads a fleet of competitive 10,000-pound monster trucks, including Bear Foot and Black Knight, through jaw-dropping races, wheelie contests, and freestyle car composting. Transaurus, a two-story transforming robot that never learned to love, buries his woes by chomping entire cars in his massive jaws while watching reruns of Felicity. Before the show, VIP tickets also grant access to the Pit Party, where fans can have autographs signed by the drivers. During intermission, fans get the opportunity to eschew sea level with a ride inside a monster truck or visit General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard and learn its true feelings about excessive hood sliding.

Trout's proudly and strongly retains the music traditions that were imported to Bakersfield via underground honky-tonk pipelines in the 1940s. The nightclub/dance hall/saloon offers up live music nightly ($5 cover charge), with area instrumentalists, karaoke aces, and mysterious, guitar-slinging drifters with hat brims pulled over their eyes taking to the Trout's Legends or Blackboard stages. Toast the sound of house band the Blackboard Playboys with a drink ($2.50–$8), or train your heels to boot, scoot, and boogie with Trout's line dance classes ($5), offered throughout the week. Trout's also houses an extensive collection of authentic memorabilia ($5–$2,000), with signed celebrity guitars and artifacts from the "Bakersfield sound" era of country music, made famous by belt-buckled Bakersfield residents Buck Owens and Merle Haggard.

At Metro BMX's weekly bicycle-motocross practice sessions, seasoned BMX vets and neophytes alike hone their racing chops on a well-maintained dirt motocross track. Racers bring their own BMX bikes (without pegs) to the course for two hours of open ride practice, during which BMX'ers can train for future races, fine-tune their skills, and conquer one of the newest Olympic sports. Riders as young as 3 (with a parental waiver) and as old as 60 frequent Metro BMX, allowing for high-octane family bonding and cross-generational understanding without awkward rides through the park on a bicycle built for nine. Metro BMX encourages riders to bring along their own helmets, though loaner helmets are available at the track.
