2010 Sonoma County Fair

Animal Rescue at the Fair

Tomorrow, August 8, is the last day of the 2010 Sonoma County Fair.  The theme this year is GRAPE ESCAPE.  The theme might be more appropriate than was imagined when selected some time past as we are still wondering when the grapes are going to be ready to pick. 

Red Tailed Hawk


The fair experience was about the same as each other year.  Outside the building with chickens and rabbits was the Animal Rescue Center information table.  There were screech owls and a red tailed hawk.  The red tailed hawk can no longer successfully hunt and so lives in captivity.  Birds are not the only animals rescued.   Prominently displayed were stuffed fox, racoon and other critters that inhabit our environs.  No advice on how to keep fox out of the chicken coop was provided.   

The House of Flowers was the best it has been in years.  That might be due to the theme being garden friendly and that the weather was not so hot as to wilt the plants.  Whatever the case, the variety was great and the designs lovely.  The Redwood Empire Rose Society once again provided rose expertise to the public during the rose display.  

Double Delight


 We were pleased to have Best in Show go to Phyllis Saccani for her three perfect Hot Princess blooms.  Cathy Fletcher won Most Fragrant and Catie Fletcher took the top mini category.  Not a bad showing for our Rose Society.
