The Fab Fair, The Fab Four and A Fabulous Time at the San Diego Fair

 

I just went to the San Diego County Fair dubbed the “Fab Fair” this year, and now I really know why it’s called the Fab Fair, not just because it’s fabulous, but because it is a tribute in many ways to the “Fab Four” – the Beatles, that iconic group from Liverpool, England.

The first glaring association very artistically done was at the entrance to a hall full of Beatlemania.

Then when you entered this hall, you were met with pictures of the Beatles, facts about the Beatles, records and albums of theirs on the walls, and so much more.  It was like entering a Beatles museum!  I enjoyed the experience immensely.

I think I really enjoyed it because England was brought to me, and the Beatles – one of the best groups ever from the country where I was born, was being celebrated in San Diego.  This made me proud!

Anyway, more of the Fab Fair now.

We saw animals, cows, pigs, sheep and more

There was a turkey stampede; this year I missed the swine race, but I think I might have written about it previously or at least showed a picture or two

Our mouth watered at the sight of all the food and the smells of it too

Then of course, it was time for the kids to have their fun and they wanted rides!

Incase you are wondering about the cost of the tickets, here is a picture that shows you the information.  Don’t forget there are certain days that you can pay $30 for a wristband and ride all day.
