Five Tasty Reasons To Visit The OC Fair

Categories: Five Great...

2. Exhibit Promenade

I'm talking the shaded place where much of the food-centric action is taking place. Fruit and veggie, table settings, baked goods and confections, and sugar arts are all being judged for ribbons and bragging rights. It's a chill place to visit between rides and meals, with lots of seating when stage events aren't scheduled.

Remember this?

The real reason we're all here. Our opening photo was of Chicken Charlie himself, modeling his newest specialty: nacho cheese, deep-fried Doritos with ranch dip. Only being sold in Orange County, he perfected the idea suggested last summer. La Super Costilla is also back, but with a gluten-free sauce option. Expect cherry Pop Rocks on massive doughnuts from one vendor, and Jack Daniels shots in hollowed out churros from our pals at Bacon-A-Fair. Round that out with some 40th anniversary Tasti Chips or crunchy fries from Pink's. Then stick a fork in yourself and pass out on those foot vibrator thingys. Man, those are effective.
