Big Fresno Fair

As part of a road trip, we will be leaving Yosemite on 4 October and were going to stay in Fresno and enter SEKI next day on 180 for basically a drive through (we don't hike) then back out the same way as my husband will not drive on very windy mountain roads.

We don't want to stay inside the park as we are concerned about the possibility of snow and Fresno gives us the option of not visiting if snow is around.

We are then heading for Cambria and the drive up the coast to San Francisco.

We are wondering how/if the fair will affect this part of the trip with regard to traffic congestion.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you

You will be fine. The traffic is just bad in the immediate area of the fairgrounds. It's located in an area of Fresno you most likely not be in.

The possibility of snow in early October is incredibly remote. You're more likely to experience temperatures in the 70's. The rainy "season" usually begins later in October.

But of course it's all determined by Mother Nature, and she'll do what she wants to do!

Thank you very much for your replies they are both very helpful.

I think I will reserve a hotel in Fresno with a good cancellation policy, then we can keep watch on the weather and availability inside the park as we are on our journey and if the weather is good, we can cancel Fresno and stay in the park.

Thanks again for the help
