My First Fair Experience
On Saturday my friend and I decided to go on spur of the moment trip to the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa with her family. When they found out it was my first time going to the fair they decided I needed to live the full experience.
Upon walking in the fair I first noticed all the sights and sounds of a typical fair. It has all the typical rides you would find at any fair or carnival including the ferris wheel and swings. In some ways it reminded me of the carnivals I went to when I was younger in La Canada but on a much grander scale. There was even a chairlift to get from one end of the fairgrounds to the other.
After walking around a little we decided we were hungry so we decided to stop for some lunch. I ultimately decided on some chicken skewers.
However, I was told it wouldn’t be a fair experience without some fried dessert so we were in search of some crazy fried sweet treats.
I could not help but laugh and take a picture when I saw this stand.
Despite all the sugar we had we could not resist buying some salt water taffy on our way out.
The Orange County Fair is open July 13 until August 12 so if you are in Southern California I would encourage you to come down and experience all delights the fair has to offer.
