Final Weekend at the California Mid State Fair in Paso Robles

JoanJett1by Tina Swithin

There are still three more days to get your fill of action at the California Mid State Fair.  The past few days have included Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Paul Rodgers, Easton Corbin, The Band Perry, Brad Paisley, Journey, Pat Benatar and Loverboy.  Year after year, the Mid State Fair delivers an impressive line-up of top-notch talent.         

I want to take a moment to thank the official photographer for the California Mid State Fair, Brittany App, for the fantastic photos that she  JoanJett2has shared with me all week.  Brittany has made my job easy as the photos speak for themselves.  I am pleased to share a set of photos from last nights concert featuring Joan Jett & The Blackhearts along with Paul Rodgers.  

Tonight, the California Mid State Fair welcomes Earth, Wind & Fire along with a special guest to the Grandstand arena for an unforgettable evening.  Saturday night will keep you on the edge of your seat with the Country Rodeo Finals and Sunday will "be a wrap" with the Toughest Monster Truck Tour.  There are still a few days left to experience the magic of the California Mid State Fair and I encourage you to do just that.

Check out the full Daily Mid-State Fair schedule, throw on your best boots and enjoy the concerts and fun activities that only the fair can provide.  By the way, I highly recommend a few spins on the mechanical bull which you will find next to Jimmy's Watering Hole!
