What: Pin-a-go-go Pinball Festival

Where: Dixon, California

When: May 19-21, 2017

Description: My favorite annual pinball fest! Last year in Dixon, and last year it’s called Pin-a-go-go, and sadly, last year I’ll get to visit the British Car Rally that happened the last day of the fest. Since we have an RV now, I snagged a campsite at the fairgrounds, which was so much better than being in a hotel room. Well, except for one rather rude neighbor who partied loudly until about 3am the first night, while he and his guests smoked, so I had to close the windows and turn on the air conditioner to drown it all out. After that, they went to bed at a reasonable hour. Given it got into the low 100’s, I kept the air conditioner on for all 3 days, and having a cool place to go eat lunch, or rest between marathon pinball sessions was delightful.
