A year after Michael Jackson's death, fairgoers at the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton can take a spin on two rides once featured at Jackson's Neverland Ranch, according to fair organizers.

The fair, which opened Wednesday, features Neverland's "Balloon Samba" ride and the "Moonwalker" ride, both of which will run until the fair's end on July 11.

The Balloon Samba features carriages that simulate riding in a hot air balloon, according to a description from California State Fair representatives. The Moonwalker ride is a Michael Jackson-themed funhouse.

The annual fair will also feature live music, barbeque, horse races, a wine competition, and other events. The fair is closed on Tuesdays.
