ummer is in full swing in San Mateo County, and the fun continues this month with the San Mateo County Fair, opening this Saturday and running through June 17.
The San Mateo County Fair has been a tradition since 1926. This will be the fair's 78th year in its current location at the San Mateo County Fairgrounds, at 1346 Saratoga Ave. in San Mateo.
This year's theme is "Where Tradition Meets Innovation," which organizers explain on the website as this:
"The San Mateo County Fair is excited to use what was great in the past to bring out the best for the future. By keeping the foundation of what the Fair's values were built on, we continually change and grow to make it even better than before, especially with unique, modern ideas to add to the plate.
"Even having the annual Fair allows the community to continue the tradition of the Fair experience for generations to come. The Fair staff cannot wait to show what they have prepared for you!"
