Talk about sheer madness… but in a good way.
Roughly 3,200 third graders representing every Solano County school district swarmed the fairgrounds Tuesday for the 17th Annual Ag Day.
The cornucopia of animals, insects, plants and information was a rousing success, said Mike Ioakimedes, executive directive of the Solano County Fair Association, adding that it’s a ninth-month logistical challenge.
“The goal is to expose the kids to health eating and healthy lifestyles … and let them know milk doesn’t come from the grocery store. It comes from a cow,” Ioakimedes said.
