Sacramento County Fair: Fun for All
Everyone is looking forward to this year’s Sacramento County Fair, which is scheduled for May 23 through 27 over the Memorial Day weekend. It will be held at Cal Expo, located at 1600 Exposition Boulevard. Grandstand events will include the Monster Truck Tour on Friday, the 23rd, and bull riding events on Saturday. From carnival rides and entertainment to the livestock show and contests, it promises to be a lot of fun. However, accident injuries can occur anywhere. When they are caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to obtain fair compensation to pay your expenses.
Hours and Prices
Prices to get into the Sacramento County Fair are reasonable. This allows visitors to enjoy all the fair has to offer, and bring along the entire family. Children up to age 12 get in free, and on-site tickets cost $8. If you purchase your tickets early, you can get them for $7. Carnival prices for wristbands that let you ride all day are $35 on-site and $25 if you pre-order. For those who will be driving to the event, parking costs $10, and this is apart from your admission tickets. You will find parking for bicycles to attend the Sacramento County Fair close to the Rodeo Gate Entrance. The spaces are limited so you will want to get there early. Hours for the fair are as follows:
- Thursday and Friday, May 23 and 24: 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Injury Accident Compensation
Public events such as the Sacramento County Fair are enjoyable. However, there are always the dangers of car accidents, poorly maintained rides and other problems that can cause a serious injury. When this happens, medical bills can pile up, and the injured person can miss work. Added to the pain and suffering of an accident, it can cause a strain on the family, both financially and emotionally. A seasoned personal injury lawyer can advise you on whether you can claim fair compensation for your injuries. This allows you to concentrate on recovering without the added worry of financial stress. Remember that personal injury lawyers offer a free consultation, and they only charge if they win your case.
