Let your imagination run wild at the Stanislaus County Fair with three new features. The Stanislaus County Fair introduces the interactive Gaming Expo, the spectacular High Diving Pirates of the Caribbean, and the adorably entertaining Pig Races.

“We try to make each Fair better than the year before, having new exhibits and entertainment achieves that,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “We are extremely excited to have such wonderful, innovative and hands-on attractions at this year’s Fair.”

The new Gaming Expo, presented by Sky Trek Aviation and sponsored by Jack in the Box, will replace Mind Works. Explore the virtual world of interactive gaming and experience flying your own drone. The Gaming Expo gives guests the opportunity to participate in their favorite gaming counsel, while experiencing the virtual world of gaming.

The new and exciting High Diving Pirates of the Caribbean Show tells a salty tale of pirates on the search for Treasure Island, where a fortune in gold and jewels are said to be buried in the sand. A 22 minute show featuring springboard and tower diving, comedy and clown diving, and the amazing high dive into a pool that is only 9½ feet deep.

Not only are pirates in town, but adorable little pigs are, too. The latest racers to hit the Great American Speedway are sure to be a hit at the Fair. Each exciting and educational show includes four race heats featuring audience participation, pig trivia, and prize giveaways for winning race cheerleaders.
