  1. I can’t wait to go to the OC Fair. I think it’s been over 5 years since the last time that I went. So, I’m excited about attending this year’s OC Fair with some friends. I also look forward to the rides and food.

  2. My favorite memory is touching a pig for the first time!

  3. Biggest moment of mine and my husbands was 11 years ago at the fair enjoying ourselves with friends, eating lots of yummy food that we were going to be home owners to our very first house and we still live in the same home. It also my husbands dearest godfathers birthday who is our angel I. Heaven)
    The greatest day to remember and we always go to the OC fair we look forward to it every year. Now it’s time sharing them with our two boys.

  4. every year my husband and i take photo booth pictures and after years of trying to have a baby last year we finally got to include our daughter in the picture….i will cherish those pics forever!

  5. I went as a kid and bought a foam lizard on a wire leash. It was my favorite toy!

  6. We are from Texas and used to LOVE the Texas State Fair, and now that we are living in the beautiful and amazing OC, we would LOVE to make NEW MEMORIES to last a lifetime! A new tradition of attending the OC Fair every single year and to document it with photos as our kids grow up… priceless! Thank you!

  8. I love the fair! Brings me back to my childhood and now I bring my own kids every year!

  9. the fun contests. we did those as kids.

  10. One of my favorite memories is of the times I would go to the fair with the youth group I work with. They kids loved seeing the animals and it was great to spend time with the other adults that I work with in a relaxing place like that.

  11. always the animals and food

  12. Love the kids’ tractor pull. 🙂

  13. Love this!

  16. Date night at the OC fair is a favorite for us.

    Thanks for sharing all your awesome tips and hot spots!

  17. My sister and I go every year together, and try ALL the new fried food items and play games for tiny little toy prizes! 🙂 And always do the photo booth! So fun! I love seeing what’s new every year.

  18. Favorite memory is at the petting zoo. A goat cornered our daughter and as she backed up she fell in their water buvket! She us now a vet and still afraid of goats.

  19. Watching my daughter in awe of all the rides,& hoping she’s big enough to ride them.

  20. Food, fun, and family time. Love seeing the smile on my son’s face.

  21. I’ve only been to the LA county fair- I danced onstage something like 10 times! I would love to take my daughter to the fair for the first time this summer (she’s one year old)

  22. My favorite fair memory was taking my son for the first time. I’ve gone since I was a young girl and to share that with him was awesome.

  23. The most memorable,greatest memory would be the whole experience for me honestly. I’ve gone twice so far. The first time I went, my mom surprised me with a ticket for me and my son and told me to take their car. I was blown away because my day completely changed from just pulling weeds. He was so small that he got lost after running away from me. It was scary but security was amazing in finding him. Last year my bf took us and it was one of the first times I felt like both of these guys were going to be OK with each other forever.

  24. My favorite memory at OC fair is when my kiddos were petting the farm animals at the petting zoo, that was awesome and they loved it!

  25. Love, Love, Love the OC fair! Sooo many favorite memories. I especially loved visiting the fair the night before I gave birth to my son. Hugely pregnant, we saw Alton Brown discuss the magic of food, nibbled on goodies, and visited the piglets with my toddler daughter.

  26. Love this blog! Excited about the giveaway!
