so much to see and taste here!


There is so much to do that one day isn't quite enough time, Kat. The variety of foods offered is almost overwhelming and the $3 day is a good way to be able to enjoy a few more things. We are planning accordingly for 2020.


That's great you are ready for the next fair! I wonder what's going to be fried up next year...


We also had those toasts and liked both! We tried the fair specific beers as well but didn't do the speakeasy this past year. Looking forward to next year's fair with it's cool 'hero' theme.


We always checked out the Chicken Charlie's (old location on Balboa) daily specials, to see if they were 'experimenting' with new things-and did try the bacon wrapped chicken legs, which were on the menu, Soo. The Chicken Charlie booth at the OC Fair had fried hummus this year (not the San Diego Fair) and the LA County Fair Chicken Charlie had a deep fried PB&J sandwich (dipped in strawberry sauce, topped with cereal) as well as deep fried cheesecake. I don't think there is much left to be fried after the Funyun ramen burrito, though...

The toasts were 'healthy' and so good, cc; kind of not 'Fair' food but limited to that audience, so a special treat. Oh, there was a speakeasy; they made it difficult to get a clue to enter this year. I've seen articles asking for people to recommend Heroes to be honored at the Fair, it will be nice to have locals as the theme; the 2007 fair "Salute to Heroes" was a really good one.


Thanks for the memory lane. I miss SoCal fairs.



Fairs are such an American tradition, stemming from farmers highlighting their work of the season, Bill. Now there's something for everyone and always interesting, educational and fun!
