I love fairs! Who doesn't?! Rides, food, shopping, food, people-watching, food, music, food, games, food, photobooths and local animals, art and gardening! Jon and I took Tuesday off to go to the San Diego County Fair. I chose Tuesday in particular because it's Taste of the Fair Tuesday and every food vendor has an item for $2. Instead of getting 2 or 3 large things (pretty much all you have room for), we got a bunch of samples that in my opinion was just the right amount of food.
Fried everything! This is America, where it's a race to be fat and unhealthy:
$2 fried garlic artichoke hearts (I'm not big on fried foods, but this was a must-have for obvious reasons):
$2 slice of cheese pizza:
$2 cinnamon roll:
$2 birthday cake Dippin Dots:
one bite of a $2 Australian battered potato with cheese and hot sauce:
Jon talked me into getting a blooming onion because I'm always talking about them. I ended up giving 90% of it away to two girls because it was just TOO much fried food at once:
Have you gone to the Fair yet this year? If you live in Southern California and you're planning on visiting the San Diego County Fair, make sure to get discounted tickets ($11) at Albertsons and park for free at the Horse Park less than a mile away from the fairgrounds, with free shuttles on double decker buses!
