It’s that time of year again for The San Diego County Fair, and this year’s theme was called “The Fab Fair” featuring all things Beatles. Of course that made me happy because it meant lots of British references, and I’m all about anything that brings me closer to the UK! It took two days with my family and one day with a friend/co-worker to get through the San Diego Fair this year. As it happens every year, we were able to partake in the sights, sounds, rides, games and of course the fab food. Next year, I’m going to take my family on a Tuesday to take advantage of “Taste of the Fair”, where some food vendors offer a sample portion of one of their menu items for just $2, which is worth the price of admission itself! I spent just $10 on food that day and was able to sample five different items. I hope the pictures speak for themselves of what a great time we had at this year’s fair. The San Diego County Fair is open until July 6th, 2014, which gives you just a few more days to enjoy one of San Diego’s finest traditions, including the 4th of July!
Inside “The Fab Fair Experience”. It was a wonderful, musical feast for all of the senses.
This was an awesome interactive display of Abbey Road!
Old school records, speakers and a display on how records are made. So nice to give the younger generation a wonderful musical education!
“A Hard Day’s Night” is one of my favorite Beatles albums.
One day, we will take Dominic to England to experience everything my husband and I have. I know he’ll love it! (Crossbody purse by Bagjunki)
Food and fun await!
My boys at The Transformers display through Chevrolet. Bumblebee has always been my favorite.
My hubby is so happy to know our boy is growing up a daredevil and will ride pretty much anything with him!
Dominic said, “Dada, help me kill zombies!”
Our little snake charmer!
Prizes we won each other: Deon won Dominic the minion, Dominic won me the donut, and I won the “Coon-munk” for Deon (we didn’t know what to call that cute cross between a raccoon and chipmunk)!
Dominic was ready to try some awesome fair food…
But none of us were brave enough to try the Triple Decker Krispy Kreme burger!
My first two dishes of the day: Deep Fried Cream Cheese with sweet chilli sauce and a Pulled Pork Mac & Cheese Melt. The deep fried cream cheese was fantastic and everything I hoped it would be, but the pulled pork sandwich left much to be desired. Oh how I wanted it to be good!
Next on the menu: Deep Fried Birthday Cake and the Spaghetti & Meatball Sandwich. The spaghetti sandwich was quite good. I think I was hoping the deep fried birthday cake was a cake pop dipped in batter and deep fried…hmmm, maybe a new recipe I should try out?
