What’s one of the most fun events to attend during the summer season? A carnival! Well, for us in Orange County, that means the OC Fair! This is an event that is put on every sumer on the fair grounds. This was actually only the second year I have gone to the fair. It’s just so fun; there’s so many rides to go on and games to play and you get to do it all with your friends or family. In my case, it was just my boyfriend and I and we went for the whole day. We chose to go on a Wednesday because we got free admission if we brought five canned goods. (I definitely recommend doing this, you want to save as much money as you can considering how much things cost when you actually get in).
We always buy the $30 pass which gives you unlimited ride access and two free games for the whole day (ends at 8:00). So we spent the whole day going on rides, walking around, playing games, and seeing all the exciting things the fair had to offer. They have a ton of animals as well that you can check out (all farm animals) and different stands where you can buy a vast amount of items from plants to massage chairs…there’s a lot of weird stuff to buy at the fair hahaha.
You’re walking around the whole day so you need to dress comfortable. On my Instagram I listed what I wore: a comfy t shirt from Brandy Melville, high waisted shorts, Nikes, and a sweater for when it gets cold at night. I also recommend bringing a backpack with some food and money. You’ll no doubt need the money (assuming you want to try out the junk food, including the deep fried Oreo or Twinky) because their prices are pretty high.
It was such a fun summer day that I’ll look back on with the best memories. It’s definitely a summer staple where I live and it gets tons of attention when it’s up and running. It’s a great family place to go, there’s something for everyone. I’d love to know a great summer event you attend wherever you live! There’s so many unique things that different areas do, so comment down below! 🙂
