It's Fair Weather!

Lots of folks know this already, but in case you don't, it's fair weather...the San Diego County Fair is back at the Del Mar Fairgrounds (the fair has been there since 1936).

The fair runs from June 8 to July 4 with some closed dates (June 11-12, 18-19 and 25). Admission is open 11 AM to 11 PM Friday and Saturday, 11 AM to 10 PM other days.

Tickets at $12 for adults, $6 for those age 62+, $6 for children 6 - 12 and FREE to those lucky enough to be 5 or younger.

Of course this means the traffic on the 5 becomes horrendous at times...more than the usual, coupled with the increased car volume we see in the summertime anyhow. So be prepared!

There is an incredible array of stuff to see, do, taste, listen to, and try. And crowds of folks to watch.

Bungee jumping, ostrich racing, onion bowling, all sorts of deep fried stuff, the Gym Class Heroes band, plenty of animals, contests, and so on, and on, and on.

I haven't been this year, yet, but I always enjoy county fairs, having been to them in Minnesota, the Boston area, in Ohio and elsewhere where I have lived over the years. Lots of fun no matter what your age.

The website has all the information you need to decide what to do and when, or just take a day and go and simply experience all the fair has to offer. Expect the crowds, but that's part of the fun.
