Aaron Eaton, an employee at the Kern County Fair, wrote in with his favorite memories of the fair:

I always enjoy going to the fair. There’s always so much to see at the fair. I enjoy the rides, the food, the fine art, the livestock, but the best of all is the exhibits and collectibles. I have entered my collection into the fair since 1999 and have won lots of ribbons each year, but in 2014 me and my fiance, Marie, took Best of Show for our rock and fossil collection.

This year, we’re doing a 100-year anniversary exhibit of the Kern County Fair. I’m a janitor at the fair and if you ask me, working at the fair is the best job in the world.

Nothing is better than keeping the fair clean for all of you that come and visit the great Kern County Fair.
