Speaking of food…The O.C. Fair is the one place on earth where everything comes fried! Brownies, Oreos, Klondike ice cream bars, avocados, bacon, Kool-Aid and even butter all get the deep-fried treatment.
The Fairgrounds are open Wed.—Fri. from noon to midnight (closed Mon. & Tues.); Open Sat. & Sun. from 10 a.m.—midnight. Kids under 6 are free. Check the website for the daily specials and promotions running on the day you plan to attend.
