On the evening of Wednesday, August 21, 1963, three days prior to the wedding, Fariña and Pynchon went to the opening of the Monterey County Fair, a five-day event in the earthy tradition of John Steinbeck’s Monterey, with Joan Baez, Kim Chappell, Marty, Betsy Siggins, and Colleen Creedon’s fifteen-year-old son Bart.
