So it was no surprise when talks turned to the theme for the 2014 Fair theme, that "No Place Like Home" was the overwhelming fan winner when staff asked their Facebook friends, and it was the hands down favorite with the Amador County Fair Board.
Using the oft-quoted mantra from Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz also encourages a slew of decorating and theme ideas incorporating famous Oz characters and situations. For example a yellow brick road of gold zinnias down the midway might greet visitors, look alike contests, scarecrows galore, and decorated ruby slippers come immediately to mind.
The 2014 Amador County Fair will be held July 24-27. The Fair staff welcomes ideas and suggestions for using the theme in contests, exhibits, and decorating, as well as volunteers and sponsors to help create the fun.
