September 26th and 27th
- Kidsfair at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton. We've attended this annual event several times and always have a great time. There are lots of shows and entertainment, craft booths, costumed characters, and all that great stuff. It runs both days from 10 am to 5 pm. Cost is $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for kids from 2 to 12, and you can also print out a coupon for $1.00 off kid's admission from the kidsfair website: http://www.thekidsfaire.com/ . They have schedules of shows and other useful info there too.
