Fair Showcases Local Apples
Before vineyards, apple orchards grew in Mendocino County. And many varieties of apples are showcased at the Mendocino County Fair and Apple Show. Besides a plethora of apples (and wine) to sample, the fair will also offer a CCPRA rodeo, classic car show, sheep dog trials, a carnival, and live music and dancing. The annual event will run September 23–25 at the fairgrounds in Boonville. Admission is $6–$10; ages 6 and younger, free. Carnival wristbands are $35–$40.
