Gay couples and other advocates for same-sex marriage are taking their fight against Proposition 8 to the state's farm towns.

Hundreds of supporters of gay marriage are targeting what they call the state's conservative center.

The event is taking place all weekend and has even attracted some big names, such as Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron.

In the meantime, opponents are putting up a fight of their own. The influential Christian group The Alliance Defense Fund filed court papers this week to fight a federal lawsuit against Proposition 8.
