The San Diego County Fair is back in town! The fair attracts hundreds of visitors every year seeking thrill rides, novelty attractions, and fun in the sun. This year the fair’s theme is “Game On!”, and will breathe new life into the nostalgic games of our past such as pinball, classic board games, and early video games.
Open now through July 4th, the fair will feature music, theme park rides, exhibits, and more. This month long event ensures fun for every age and every family. Each weekend the fair will highlight different, exciting events such as a Wine Festival on June 15th and a Beer Garden on June 21st – 23rd. They also have family friendly activities such as “Family Feud Fun!” and the “Star Trek exhibit,” which allows your family to wander through a far off galaxy. In addition, this year’s Toyota Concert Series will feature big names such as Switchfoot, Train, Colbie Caillat, and Martina McBride. If you’re looking for kid-friendly acts you won’t want to miss Big Time Rush, Victoria Justice, and Bridgit Mendler.
A visit to the San Diego County Fair simply wouldn’t be complete without a mouthful of fried concoctions. This year’s fair boasts impressive new treats such as Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe burgers and Bacon Beer. Don’t think you can stomach a fried sloppy burger and a greasy drink? Other must eats are fried cookie dough, bacon truffle fries, bacon mac-n-cheese melt, deep fried cereal and a twist on the classic peanut butter and jelly. But traditionalists need not fear, as there will be an array of classic fair favorites such as funnel cakes, 2.5 pound turkey legs, and corn dogs.
Pacific Beach’s own Ocean Park Inn is the ideal place to stay during your visit to the San Diego County Fair. After a long day in the sun, it’d be nice to kick back and listen to the waves from the comfort of your room. Just a short drive to the San Diego County Fair, Ocean Park Inn ensures excellent memories with your family and friends during your time in San Diego.
