It’s that time of year again guys! One of my favorite things about the end of Summer, besides the kids going back to school, is of course the LA County Fair! For the past 6 years I have been sharing with you all of the delicious foods you can look forward to because, let’s keep it real, fair food is the best! This year will be no different.
Over the years I have tried a little bit of everything. From chocolate covered beetles, to Krispy Kreme Chili-Cheese burger, Ramen Burgers, Cotton candy coated kettle corn in liquid nitrogen, Cotton candy ice cream sandwich and pretty much everything deep-fried and in between. And through it all, I still have my favorite, The Briskett Sundae, a cup of mashed potatoes topped with BBQ Briskett and a cherry (tomato) on top.
This year, the LA County Fair theme is #FairGoesPOP! From art to clothes to technology to toys, the Fair takes a deep drive into Pop culture with a spotlight on Los Angeles’ influence. I can not wait for this. I grew up in the 90’s in LA and this is going to be so cool! Guests can expect to stroll among giant iconic LA art installations or dance at a modern-day Studio 54 at the Silent Disco, both on The Hillside; trek through memory lane with toys from years past at Toytopia, including a giant Etch-A-Sketch and life-sized Monopoly game; experience an explosion of pigmentation as the Flower & Garden Pavilion bursts in Pops of Color; and play among the collision of technology and pop culture in Popnology 2.0, where science fiction becomes science fact.
Oh and because it did so well last year, the Fair is bringing back their popular $6.60 Value menu, which gave guests the option to grab certain menu items and a drink at a great price! Keep your eye out for those!
The Fair runs Aug. 30 to Sept. 22 at Fairplex.
