Celebrate fall during Harvest Festival at fairgrounds

Shop, shop, shop for unique jewelry, ceramics and more

The Pleasanton Harvest Festival at the Alameda County Fairgrounds next weekend will blend Halloween fun, music and entertainment with a shopping bonanza of more than 24,000 handmade gifts. Indoor and outdoor booths will feature original art, jewelry, clothing, ceramics, photography, specialty foods, toys, decor and more.

The family-friendly fest includes a pumpkin patch and a KidZone with Halloween-themed "make-and-take" arts and crafts. Live entertainment will include Capt. Jack Spareribs -- a magical juggling pirate who bears an uncanny resemblance to Johnny Depp -- and Retroactive Dance Band performing songs from the '60s to current hits from Motown to Bruno Mars, Adele to Maroon 5.

The Pleasanton Harvest Festival is also giving back to the community by partnering with the Crown Monarchs Youth Cheer Squad, a nonprofit competitive squad that promotes cheerleading and dance for girls. Half of the proceeds from shopping bags sold as the event will go to the cheer squad as well as a direct donation from the Harvest Festival.

The festival runs all next weekend, Oct. 26-28.

Just visited their website. As a senior it would cost me $7 to attend the event. According to the website they are charging more to park ($10) then to attend the actual event. Now, I don't mind paying entrance fee and spending my hard earned money for way over priced items. Not at all because most of the vendors are small operations and significant markup is just part of the deal. However to pay and additional $10 bucks to park my car???? Count me out...

Old Guy,
You can always do street parking or in other close-by lots. Get there early, though before they fill up. Contact the Fairgrounds directly to comment on their parking lot price: frontdesk@alamedacountyfair.com or 925-426-7600.
