Our Trip to the @OCFair! #ComeHungry! #COSTAMESA


A couple of weeks ago, my family and I were invited to indulge at the OC Fair.  The last time we had attended, my kids were in diapers!

We went during the week on a Thursday and there were short lines and plenty of food!

One thing that you always hear about at the fair is the food!  Fried everything!  If you can imagine it, they have deep fried it!


The common thing that I saw there was bacon... Bacon was common food fare and they put it in everything!  I am a huge fan so of course I had to try at least some of it!  I was a little disappointed with the chocolate covered bacon... I like my bacon crispy and it was soggy.






The favorite food we tried was the Red-Velvet funnel cake! It was Delish!


We stopped off for turkey legs at Juicy's and waddled our way back to the fair.



The kids were itching to go on rides.  I highly recommend the all day Super-pass as with two young children, the rides added up fast.  We kept having to go back for more tickets.




After the rides, we tried our hand at a few of the carnival games and won a (no-kidding) 10 foot long stuffed snake that is my son's favorite bedtime animal now, Hello Kitty plush, swords, and an assortment of various stuffed creatures. 


The creature that eluded us all day was the Minion!  Everywhere we looked they had these cute Minions from Despicable Me 2.


The kids had to use the restroom and the nearest ones were by the craft area so we decided to investigate.  WOW! I wish I had the talent of the people that created these designs!  There were; quilts, clothing, woodcraft, dollhouses, jewelry and more! 


       


My favorite were the haunted houses and the intricate wood carvings!


We entered the 4H competition area and were treated to the swine class. 

More rides and games and we were wiped out!  The kids were ready to head home.  There is so much to do!  I wish we could have stayed longer but I am glad my kids had a great time!


We couldn't resist this... I have always wanted to get an old fashioned picture done of us and we got the chance and took it! LOVE it!
