San Diego County Fair...

I felt this event that happens every summer in San Diego, needed it's own post! It doesn't matter if you are local or from out of town, the San Diego County Fair at the Del Mar fairgrounds is always exciting. Each year there is a theme and this year's is one of my favorites: Race To The Fair.

What makes this year special for little ones is that June 11- June 12, because of the theme and the movie "Cars 2" -coming out later this month- there will be three characters from the new movie at the fair.

Also Aric Almirola Nascar Racer will be here on June 21 for interview from 1:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. and then there will be an autograph session from 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

You will have your usual "Heart Attack Cafe" which is now known as "Deep Fried Butter Stand" with their usual deep fried Twinkies, chocolate covered corn dog and much more! New this year and from Hollywood Pink's with their very famous hot dogs! yum!!! and much more...
