Are you ready for a day of frozen and fried treats, unique and exquisite crafts, and outdoor fun?
We thought you would say yes! Day 120 of 365 Things to do in Pasadena sends us to the L.A.County Fair!
We know that we are crossing the Pasadena city limits here… but for a day of funnel cake, animals galore, shopping and rides. We can certainly promote a caravan to the fair!
The L.A. County Fair will be running from September 4th through October 3rd 2010, open Wednesday through Sunday.
Do you have a MUST DO or MUST EAT when you attend the fair?
I personally see it and I want to eat it all! My usual favorites are a Turkey Leg, Curly Fries, & Funnel Cake and no, I usually don’t share! 😉
Since we usually spend the entire day walking around and exploring the many exhibits and adorable animals, I don’t feel the need to hold back on the calories.
Each time we have visited the L.A. County Fair we always find the most interesting and unique little treasures to take home.
