Hi folks, it's outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer. Please pay her a visit to see more outdoor frolicking. Today I thought I'd take you on a virtual tour of a southern California summertime tradition, the San Diego County Fair. This year's theme at the fair was a tribute to music.
As you can see, there were tons of people there, even on a Tuesday. Though overcast, the weather was perfect. It was nice to escape the triple digit heat where I live.
Let me take you on a gastronomical tour of the fair. Here, the aroma of roasting corn filled the air.
How about some BBQ Turkey Legs? At $12 a leg, I had to pass. Sorry, I'm a budget conscious foodie.
They deep fry everything at the fair. S'mores, frog legs, avocados, cookies, twinkies...you name it, they fry it!
These chicken kabobs are much healthier, but also at $12, I think I'll just make it at home. Oh no, I'm beginning to sound like my mother!
Okay, we finally opted for the giant hot dog. Fairly priced at $4, with grilled onions to boot.
Do you remember Orange Julius? They used to have Orange Julius restaurants at the malls back in the 70's. They were the first smoothies! I just had to buy some for my kids to try and to take my taste buds down memory lane. We sampled all the flavors, orange, strawberry, and pina colada.
I got dizzy just watching the people on this ride.
And of course, we had to try our luck at some carnival games. She won!
Hope you're having a fun filled summer. Thanks for visiting the Lace and Ivy Cottage. Let me know you've come by and say hi!
Till next time,
