The Dixon May Fair wrapped up Sunday after handing out more than 2,000 roses for Mother’s Day. Vacaville resident Ashley Sauerwein, pictured, a mother of three, sniffs a rose alongside Maria Juarez of Sacramento, who has two children and has been handing out roses at the fair for 14 years. Billed as California’s oldest fair, it began in 1876 and features regional music, livestock shows, quilt exhibits, jams and more. Also pictured, Flo the Clown is joined by canine friend Lady while strolling through the busy fairgrounds; above, Nora Welsh, 8, of Benicia somehow keeps her boots on while enjoying the Power Jump.
