Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean that the fun stops here in L.A.! The end of summer here means fair season is about to start. The L.A. County Fair will begin on Friday August 30, 2013 and continue on until Sunday September 29, 2013. The fair will provide fun and entertainment perfect for everyone young, old, and those in between. If you will be staying at one of the hotels near LA Fairplex at the end of August or any time during September, be sure to put aside one day for the fair.
The L.A. County Fair will have plenty of carnival rides and delicious food to your heart’s delight. You can expect to see typical carnival rides as well as a kiddie carnival for children who do not meet height requirements for the other carnival rides. There will be tons of food booths including a wine and beer marketplace for adults. No fair would be complete without some adorable animals. In addition to a petting zoo, the fair will have pig races, a sea lion splash show, live shark and stingray encounter, and more! There will also be a number of musical performances taking place throughout the entire month the fair is in town including Ke$ha, Demi Lovato, Los Tigres Del Norte, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Bangles, The Jacksons, and more.
In addition to rides, shopping and food, the fair will contain numerous themed attractions.
