LA County Fair Giveaway


I started going to the LA County Fair with my husband, in fact it was sort of our first date 13 years ago. We go every year and it really is a whole day affair, and you still don't see everything. As the years have gone by our focus has changed. Now that our daughter is in on it we spend a lot more time on the rides and looking at the animals. But we still get time to go do the labyrinth of shopping, they have 3 large hangers full of everything under the sun(over 2000 retailers), it's not to be missed. The horse races are great fun, if you haven't been to one before, this is the perfect way to get your feet wet. I haven't even talked about the food. The food is great, they have amazing bar-b-ques,chili in a bread bowl and crazy deep fried twinkies and oreos and who knows what else. One year we ate everything they had to offer on a stick, which turned out to be quite a lot. There is much, much more but you will have to go to the fair more than once to see, eat and ride it all.

I'm ready to get someone started with a 4 ticket Family Fun Pack giveaway.

TO ENTER: Just leave a comment on this post by Tuesday Sept. 8 before 6pm pt and be a Southern California resident and one lucky reader will be on their way. Good luck

UPDATE: Congratulations to Shawna of JCGrace Girls who was drawn by Random.org!!!

Elise, you're inspiring us! We actually may go to the fair. Yep, we've lived here 12 years and haven't been. Can't wait for funnel cake. Yum.

I have been known to eat a fair amount of food that comes on a stick myself. I do love a county fair!

I haven't been to the fair in years because I always had a baby who was too young to go. Now that my kids are old enough I would love to start going again. I'm sure a lot has changed since the last time I was there.

I've never been to the LA county fair, which is surprising because I love food on a stick.

Elise. Thanks for the heads up. I will be taking the girls and Gael to introduce them to all new sights, sounds, smells and tastes!

Susie said...

I remember taking my kids a couple of years ago...and then forgot to go last year! I would really like to take them this year, if I can get my act together!

Oren said...

We've never been to the fair and only have heard wonderful things about it. Looking forward to the possibility.

Sandy Eiges said...

Never been, would be thrilled with free tickets forcing us to drive to Pomona! Seriously, my daughter would happily spend time watching cows being milked!

PnP said...

WOOHOO, pick us! My girls are fair deprived and would love to see the pig races! Crossing fingers!.... :-) Debra

We went last year when our daughter was 1 1/2 and she had a great time. Hoping to bring her and the new baby (well, almost 7 months now) and have a good time again.

I'm rolling the dice, mamma. just had a baby 9 months ago, so now along with my five year old, I guess we qualify now as a family of four.
