Find the Fair logo and win free tickets and maybe a box at the races!

Free ticket offer ends with this Friday's Pleasanton Weekly edition

As you peruse last Friday's edition of the Pleasanton Weekly, look for the Alameda County Fair's 100th anniversary logo. It might be part of an ad? Or you might find it in a news story, photo, even as part of a columnist's 'heading?'

The Alameda County Fair is celebrating its 100th year, and the Pleasanton Weekly wants you to be in on the fun. So we are giving you an opportunity to win four free fair tickets and be eligible for a box at the famous horse races for a day.

Each week through this Friday's edition, we will draw a name from the correct entries in our Find the Fair Logo contest and the winner will receive four fair tickets. When the contest ends, the winner of the box at the races will be drawn from all correct entries from all four contests.

The Alameda County Fair's 100th year logo is hidden in 10 different locations in the June 8, 15 and also next Friday's editions of the Pleasanton Weekly. It could be in a photo, news story, advertisement, staff box, classifieds or even on the front page.

To enter the contest, complete the form. There will be a new form available every Friday at 8 a.m., and that week's contest will end the following Thursday at 2 p.m. In addition to your full name and email address, you will be asked to list the locations in the paper that contained the logo (for example, p. 10, ShopPleasanton ad or p. 12, staff box). Entries are accepted online only and winners will be notified via email.

You can enter the contest each week, but submit only one entry per email per week; multiple entries from the same email will disqualify the entrant for that week's contest. Employees of Embarcadero Media Company and the Alameda County Fair and their immediate family members are not eligible.
