This weekend the LA County Fair opened with a promotion for $1 admission from 10-1. Normally it’s $17/person. Eric and I, along with most of the Inland Empire and LA County, headed out since we prefered to spend our money on food and not admission. After a seriously rocky start where we sat on the transition ramp from the 57 to the 10 for an hour and a half (and I had a meltdown about the traffic), we made it in at the last second. Eric actually bought tickets at the $1 rate for the people behind him in line since they wouldn’t have made it.
Once inside however, we had a great time. We ate…and ate…and ate.
We visited the animals…
saw the knitting and spinning exhibits and my personal favorite, table scapping.
We went to the pig and chicken races.
Enjoyed the wine and beer tasting…
We even did some shopping watched the Peking Acrobats (who were so amazing I refused to take pictures, you have to just see them for yourself).
After a full day–about eight hours–we were officially exhausted. A great trip but time to head home.
