Tuesday, June 18, 2013's Lowdown

What's in a name? In recent years it's been called the "Humboldt Made Fair." This year they're gonna try out "The Best of Humboldt Fair." You've known it for years as the "Redwood Acres Fair." By any other name it would still smell of delicious garlic fries. 

Whatever you call it, the thing is happening again this week from Thursday to Sunday at the Redwood Acres Fairgrounds. You know how this works: You got your midway rides, animal shows, carnival food, car races, livestock shows, live music. Hell there's even a ventriloquist scheduled. 

And then you have your local angle. Various local products will be on display and for purchase in the rechristened "Best of Humboldt" Building. Also, be sure to check out  special Humboldt Roller Derby bout on Thursday at 6 p.m.

Again, this thing starts Thursday (click here for the full schedule). If you're itching to go out Tuesday, peruse your Lowdown below.
