Archiving Orange County AOC: OC Fair

Main Exhibit Hall

Main Exhibit Hall

The OC Fair wasn’t always host to giant $2 million shows or an exhibit hall-turned-“As Seen On TV” playroom.

The fair used to (*gasp*) showcase the surrounding cities that make up the county. Here we see Tustin’s “Farm Center” and a little special appearance by San Diego County. Times were a little less “in your face” back then. But they still loved comics, though probably not as much as we do.

But this was 50 years ago, 1949.

    The farm animals are always my favorite thing a the fair. However, I am looking very forward to seeing the Weird Al 3-D exhibit!
