'Mountains of Fun' is theme for 2011 California Mid-State Fair

"Mountains of Fun" is the chosen theme for the next California Mid-State Fair, planned for July 20 through July 31, 2011.

The fair's board of directors selected the theme at its Oct. 20 meeting. Submitted anonymously from 100 public entries, the idea will be incorporated in the fair's marketing materials, building displays and public events.

"Focusing on the great outdoors, the theme was chosen to reflect a summer full of discovery in the High Sierras; complete with hiking, biking, rivers and campfires," fair officials said in a statement.
