In the weekly feature called "e-views," we invite readers to answer a question via email or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/BrentwoodNews.
Last week's question:
The Contra Costa County Fair runs from May 29-June 1 in Antioch. Please share with us what you like most, or least, about the fair.
UNFORTUNATELY I GO to other neighboring county fairs because they run longer than just one weekend, and they have better entertainment. I will take my young son for a few hours for the rides, but that is it. I live a block away from the fairgrounds in Antioch. If there was better entertainment, I would go.
CORN dogs and pink popcorn. Two fair time staples!
SEEMS TO ME that they would try to bring in at least one known band. I saw Edgar Winters there several years back. Oh yeah, and the concerts by those bands that used to sell out the Oakland stadium can't raise a crowd at the county fair nowadays.
WE don't get good bands at the fair. Just cover bands.

FUNNEL cakes always a hit, and of course the zipper ride
I'D RATHER spend the money on the Alameda fair. It's way bigger, cleaner and just better! Antioch's is just sad.
This week's question
Brentwood was recently named to the Playful City USA list for the seventh consecutive year, in large measure because of its abundance of parks. What is your favorite park in East County and why?
