A line forms for one of three different ferris-wheels at the Riverside County Fair and Date Festival.
While date palms aren't native to Riverside, they became a major crop after farmers transplanted trees from Algeria, becoming so popular that date farmers represented Riverside County at the 1915 World's Fair. The festival dates back to 1921 but never seriously caught on until after World War II. In addition to a variety of free musical acts and entertainment, the festival features rides, youth farming and livestock programs, local arts and artists and even monster truck rallies.
