A cattle drive down fairground road will be followed by a pancake breakfast on Saturday, August 4th. Later that evening a kick-off celebration for the Monterey County Fair will be held. The evening festivities include a BBQ dinner, live music, dancing and a silent auction. The poster for this year’s Monterey National Horse Show uses artwork by Jo Mora, known his beautifully illustrated book that describes the world of the American Cowboy, ‘Saddle Dust and Trail Leather’. The poster uses the eye-catching black and white pen and ink Western-themed image.
