Before saying that the Maricopa County Fair is the red-headed stepchild to the Arizona State Fair, you should check out whats going down at the former, which kicks off from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday, March 14. Not only are there minor-league motocross races, but theres also a pie-baking contest and a livestock show.
Well, maybe its a bit podunk, but whatevs. Because you know what? Its also one of those events that are deeply rooted to Arizonas rural past. Thats hip.
April 14-18, 10 a.m.-10 p.m., 2010
