It’s that time of year, time for the Annual San Diego Fair, beginning June 3 through July 4. This year it is called Mad about the Fair, it’s 26 days of wild and whimsical fun! Join us for San Diego’s biggest annual event!
The smell of the fair is in the air with the aromas of Funnel Cakes, Fried Twinkies & Baaaaaaaaaaaaacon! For all you chocolate lovers- you can have chocolate covered anything, including Bacon! This year dig your teeth into Chicken Charlies Krispy Kreme Triple Cheeseburger. That is three burger patties with cheese sandwiched between 2 donuts – are you kidding me? Wow, if anyone has tried it please let me know. Eat at your own risk & bring some Tums just in case.
50 Shades of Savings-for fair deals, head to Albertsons or Vons and purchase $3.00 off tickets, regular day admission is $16. Tuesday, June 21 and June 28 are Kids’ Day’s at the fair, children 12 and under get in free. Admission for kids ages 6-12 is $9 on (normal days). Children 5 and under get in free all fair season long. One of the best Deals is 26 for $26— you can get an unlimited pass – $26 for 26 days, it’s a great deal.
50 Shades of Rides –buckle up and enjoy the rides. From flips, twirls, dips & wheels, my favorite is the Grand Wheel and an added bonus it has grand beach views. Fun it up- from the coaster to ferris wheel you can be a kid again. It’s fun for all ages.
