San Joaquin Fair officials are thrilled about the fair's success
in its 150th year of existence. Attendance was almost as great as
it was two years ago.
Mild weather — mostly in the 80s — was largely responsible for
the Stockton fair attracting 82,757 people for the five-day run
that ended Sunday, according to fair CEO Debbie Cook.
