mmm-yoso!!! is a blog about food. Sometimes there are situations surrounding the acquisition of food. Today's post is about one of those times. Cathy is writing.
The 2014 San Diego County Fair opened on June 7. It will close this Sunday, July 6. Plan to go over there soon to join in the festivities of this "Fab Fair". I'm going to mostly add photos and just a few explanations at the end. The fifth largest County Fair in the USA is overwhelming with things to see, do and eat.
As I said, overwhelming. The Mister and I have been here multiple times, met friends, gone with family and tried out the various food items. There have been countless competition entries in so many categories within Home & Hobby, Design in Wood, Gems, Minerals & Jewelry, Photography, Fine Art and all of their subcategories. There have been Daily Contests, 4H competitions (and those animals will be auctioned on July 5), instructional presentations, pig races, turkey stampede, Garden Show, concerts, the New Farm at Family Funville near the Kid's Zone. You've missed the Toast of the Coast Wine Festival, San Diego International Beer Festival and the 10th annual Gospel Festival. There is still a daily Craft Beer/Wine Experience in the Home & Hobby area and on July 5, the Big Bite Bacon Fest will be back.
Some of the photos of food consumed include the fresh made cream puff, pretzel, $2 Tuesday samples, zucchini curls, a Pink's chili dog, Indian fry bread and grilled cauliflower sandwich (a new item and personal favorite of mine; I've had/shared four this year, so far).
There is a free shuttle and parking near the Fairgrounds, if you don't want to pay the $10 fee. It's all listed on the Website. Hope to see you there! You can see fireworks all over the county at 9 p.m. on July 4, but the fireworks seen from the Midway at the Fair are particularly beautiful.Other Blogger perspectives of the 2014 San Diego County Fair Here, Here and Here.
