Cattle Drive to Kick off Alameda County Fair

Downtown Pleasanton will once again pay tribute to its Wild West beginnings as the Alameda County Fair’s Opening Day Cattle Drive returns for an encore on Friday, June 15. The live procession will feature cowboys, cowgirls, a big herd of steers, fair entertainers and loads of surprises. The event will start at Del Valle Avenue and head on to Main Street in Downtown Pleasanton at approximately 10:30AM.

“After the tremendous turnout last year, Alameda County Fair is excited to bring back the Opening Day Cattle Drive,” said CEO, Jerome Hoban. “This time we’ll have a few Texas Longhorns in the mix, plus Fair entertainers and other surprises.”
