A Night at the Los Angeles County Fair, 2015 Edition
Deep-fried food, ferris wheels, more deep-fried food, circus acts and yes, another dose of deep-fried food. That's the Los Angeles County Fair, and the Franklin Avenue 4 enjoyed another balmy September evening this weekend taking it all in.
The view of the fair, which was divided into several parts: Carnival, The Farm (petting zoo, heritage mission, pig races and more), Shopping & Attractions, Kids' Zone, Outdoor Living, Home & Garden, Grandstand and Extreme Thrills (Go Karts and bungee jumps).
One of this year's food highlights (although I didn't try it) -- the Fireball-infused caramel banana donut. Not for kids.
I'd argue guacamole is fine on its own, but hey, why not.
I'm just gonna say it: I think you may be missing the point of a Slim Fast bar.
The line to get in the Fairplex was long on Friday night
A highlight: Riding the Sky Ride over the fair. (Think ski lift, but if you fall... there's no snow to cushion the blow).
Free "Live Shark Encounter" show at the "Beneath the Sea: An Underwater Adventure" attraction.
No one was eaten, as far as we can tell.
Another view, of the Kids' Zone (the Garden Railroad and kiddie rides)
The kids' favorite sites at the LA County Fair includes the massive Garden Railroad model train.
A Fox theatre replica at the model trains.
A "Big"-like step piano
Even the Doctor enjoys a good county fair.
