The Black-Eyed Peas, Smash Mouth, Brad Paisley, Village People and the B-52s are among the musical acts that will be featured at the 2004 Ventura County Fair, which gets underway next month at Seaside Park in Ventura. This year's theme, "Hooray for Hollywood," was inspired by the county's long-standing relationship with the entertainment industry, organizers said during a news conference Wednesday.

Organizers of the Ventura County Fair have shortened next summer's fair to 10 days, citing scheduling conflicts with other big events around the state. The 2000 fair will be held Aug. 4-13, two days shy of the traditional 12-day schedule. Organizers have not determined whether 10 days will become the standard length for future fairs. The annual event is customarily sandwiched between two fairs that share many of the same concessionaires: the Orange County Fair and Cal Expo in Sacramento.

Confronted with a deadlocked board of directors, the chief executive of the Ventura County Fairgrounds on Tuesday resigned the post he held for three years. Roger Gibbs, 56, said a 4-4 philosophical split on the board -- and one vacant seat -- has made it impossible for him to make progress on a variety of issues. The division was evident at a fair board meeting Tuesday, when members twice failed to reach a consensus on who would lead the board next year.

One of the biggest obstacles facing motorsports in Southern California is property values. Almost any property large enough to accommodate racing can be made more profitable by being converted into residential, commercial or industrial complexes. Lions Dragstrip, Riverside International Raceway, Ascot Park, Saugus Speedway, Ontario Motor Speedway and five tracks in Irwindale are all defunct. There is a possibility Ventura Raceway could be added to the list.
