Nothing Says Summer Like the OC Fair

The OC Fair brings you together with one of SoCal’s most entertaining summer traditions. Sure, we have the Ventura County Fair or the LA Fair as well, but there is something special about the OC Fair.

The fair mixes tasty fried food along with every type of carnival attraction you could possibly imagine. And in case you haven’t found yourself in more country-oriented areas, you can check out cute farm animals and the occasional rodeo or demolition derby.

I definitely wouldn’t plan on maintaining any sort of dietary restrictions while at the fair, as evidenced by the picture above. If there was ever a time for a little bit of a cheat day, it would be when attending this fair. I am not entirely sure if I’m seeing whipped cream or ice cream on top of those fries. I am both curious and horrified.

However, I am fully in support of this Flaming Hot Cheeto Pizza. I know what I am ordering when I head down to Costa Mesa this weekend. The OC Fair will conclude in early August so you have a little bit of time to check it out. All the details you could possibly want can be found right here at the event website. Enjoy your summer and the OC Fair.
