Kids parade for free admission to the fair

By From page B10 | July 21, 2014

This year’s Kid’s Parade on opening day of the Amador County Fair on Thursday, July 24, will likely have a lot of red sparkly shoes marching down the street, to match the fair’s slogan of “There’s No Place Like Home.”

So get your creative juices flowing, drag out the wagon, the stroller and the wheelbarrow. The annual Amador County Fair Kids Parade brings to mind the Pied Piper as they all merrily head from downtown Plymouth to the magic that awaits them at the Amador County Fair.

Sign-ups are at Plymouth City Hall from 8:15-9 a.m. Judging for the best theme costumes is at 9:15 a.m. and the parade marches off at 9:30 a.m.

Admission to the fair for kids 12 and under is free until 6 p.m, only on Kids Day, July 24.

There’s no better time for a family with children to enjoy the fair – everything will be fresh and waiting before the big crowds arrive in the evenings and on the weekends.

Every day is “Dress Like a Pirate Day” at the Amador County Fair and anyone doing so will be admitted free until 6 p.m. Captain Jack Sparrow, just in from the Hawaiian Islands, will be on deck recruiting his crew.

Every child who participates in the parade will be given free carnival tickets courtesy of Ken Johnston, Carnival of Fun. There are plenty of gentler rides for smaller children as well as the thrilling loop-de-loop extravaganzas the older kids anticipate.

Once again there will be no smoking or tobacco use allowed on the fairgrounds for Kids Day. Kids are also encouraged to bring their grandparents on Friday, July 25 for Seniors Day.

For more information visit or call 209-245-6921.
