Already feeling nostalgic about the OC Fair and it’s only been a day since it’s departure.
Wishing we could have stayed longer on the last day. Wishing we could have visited one extra day.
Every time I go to the fair, I revel to be in the midst of all of the excitement, rain or shine. The fair is the place where my inner child comes alive. I love being around all of the people, listening to all of the musical entertainment, seeing all of the bright lights, riding around on the carousel, going down the potato sack slide, playing the water balloon games and winning the biggest prizes. Most of all, I relish all of the great food.
Weighing in at 960 lbs- our entire party of five people – indulged on just about everything pleasing to our eyes: lobster on a stick, pineapple and shrimp bowls, Maui chicken pineapple bowls, BBQ beef brisket platter with beans and coleslaw, beef ribs, chili cheese fries and for dessert and over sized bacon donut and my favorite – a glossy, red candy apple on a stick.
No need for a ‘grazin day,’ going with a larger size group is the best way. The more the merrier and the less expensive the feast will be. Also, the more people you have, you can sample all of the food that you want and feel guilt free. Even if you are the one eating everything that the others can’t finish, so nothing goes to waste.
Besides, by the time we finished walking around, playing games, and hunting down the last pikachu prize, the calories were sure to be burned. Even is they weren’t, who cares, we enjoyed the food at the OC Fair and we always take home a bag of cotton candy to savor the sweet treat and the memories for the rest of the week. I know there will be a new treat to try next year. I am not sure how everyone else in the group is feeling, but I can hardly wait until next year for another go around at the OC Fair.
