The Alameda County Fair Association provides entertainment through daily horse races, live music concerts, food, kids' attractions, competitive exhibits, livestock awards, and more. Bring family, friends, and ribbon-worthy swine to enjoy activities like pig races, tractor races, dog races, food-eating races, and an anticlimactic petting-zoo race. This year's fair boasts an eclectic lineup of performers, such as the renowned Beatles cover band BeatleMajesty, Grand Funk Railroad, Lonestar, and War. The range of activities at the fastest-growing fair in America is so vast, it makes the great plains seem like the plain plains.
Umigo Racing sends adrenaline-seekers careening through its indoor track atop high-performance carts that hit speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. Umigo's sleek black roadsters whiz effortlessly through hairpin turns, speedy straightaways, and electrifying highway tolls, kindling excitement whether in competition with racing companions or tearing by on a solo session. Upon arrival, drivers suit-up in a freshly laundered race suit and neck brace, swathing craniums in a brand-new head sock. Racers fly through up to 20 laps in a single session on the innovative course design, which transforms into one of 20 different configurations every two to three weeks to keep rubber-burners on their toes.
At Boomers! Livermore, thrill-seeking families and fun-enabling friends can attack any of five available attractions. Recreationists can wile away the hours at the helm of purring go-karts, scaled-down kiddie go-karts, and bumper boats or explore the vehicle-free joys housed inside the laser-tag arena, game room, and the game room's prize-redemption center. Unlimited-pass holders can also putt the golf course, which like all the best horses, marshmallows, and spy equipment, is miniature.
