I was in the store the other day and noticed all the back to school supplies are out! That means it's almost the end of summer and the beginning of the LA County Fair. I've gone almost every year for as long as I can remember. This year the Fair will be open Wednesdays - Sundays from September 4th - October 3, 2010. Here you will find a selection of fair promotions. For a complete list visit LA County Fair Promotions
Now who's ready for some funnel cake?
