On Wednesday July 23 I went to the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa, California. The weather this past week has not been that hot so I thought it would be a good time to go. The theme this year is:

which applies to cheese products and photography (get it?) I came in through the entrance that is over by the animals and went and saw them first.

This tent is a display area for the children and they had this cool truck and a cheese sculpture.

And what would the fair be without food?!

What? Do you think I ate this?!!! (Yes, I did. I know - bad girl)

More theming
Interesting stilt walkers were around

Just a few interesting fair shots


On to the garden area

Anyone like bonsai?

Inside the show building with flower and wood displays

It was not very crowded during the day but the crowds picked up during the evening hours

Inside this Arts and Crafts building was this handmade display of the show at Disneyland (in the Golden Horseshow) called Billy Hill and the Hillbillies. It is one of our favorite shows to see when we go to the park. This was amazing and won first place in its division and not only that it won Best in Show!

An evening shot just before leaving
