Wow….this event totally snuck up on me this year. The OC Fair opens this weekend and for their opening day, they are offering free parking and free admission from noon to 1 p.m. It will be here for a month from July 13-August 12 and they are open from Wednesday thru Sunday. We went last year and it can definitely get quite expensive after all the rides and all the food so here is a link to some of the promotions they are offering. The fair is held at the OC Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. If you haven’t been there before, please know that it can be an all day affair because there is so much to do and see. Please visit their website for all the details as they do a much better job of describing everything they have to offer. Have fun!OC Fair 88 Fair Drive Costa Mesa, California 92626.
