Sonora, Ca — The four day Mother Lode Fair is in full swing.
Highlights include the livestock competitions and auction, live musical entertainment featuring local talent, the Mother Lode Idol competition, a hypnotist, carnival rides, destruction derby, motocross and numerous vendors.
The fair will remain open until midnight this evening, and then be back open from noon until midnight on Sunday.
Saturday night´s feature entertainment is the 4×4 Truck Pull in the main arena, and beginning at 5pm on Sunday evening will be the popular destruction derby.
In past years the fair had been held in the middle of July, but it was moved up for 2008 in an attempt to beat the traditional 100 plus degree temperatures.
