Funky Fun at the Marin County Fair


MANY CELEBRATIONS OF the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love are happening throughout the Bay Area, and the Marin County Fair is no exception. Of course Haight-Ashbury comes to mind with any mention of that era, but Mount Tamalpais also played a role, as it was the site of the Fantasy Fair and Magic Mountain Music Festival. Nodding to this historic time, this year’s county fair will feature tie-dye and macramé competitions along with the standard carnival rides, free concerts — including the Commodores and UB40 — and fireworks every night. The fair kicks off Friday, June 30, and continues until July 4.
