The California State Fair is all about fun! This year the Fair continues to have mouth watering food, petting zoos, and rides, however there are some new features that our own Gary Gelfand was able to check out.

This year, there will be the CSF Cornhole Championship at the Miller Lite Racetrack Grandstand.  More than 50 teams of two people will compete for bragging rights.  This will be its inaugural year.

Cal Expo is introducing a new addition to the park-- a gondola skyline ride. This new ride is a permanent addition to Cal Expo costing $1.1 million.  It is 1,315 feet long covering the length of Cal Expo with 77 3-seat gondolas to ride.

The new skyline will ride over free-style motocross shows that will be happening three times a night.
