It’s way too hot for a county fair in Riverside County, so you’ll have to wait until February for that.
But if you just can’t wait for a county fair, a short trip to Costa Mesa will get you to cooler weather and the 127th Orange County Fair.
This year it delivers a chicken sandwich topped with ice cream and wedged between two donuts.
And a spicy pizza topped with Cheetos.
Or deep-fat-fried peanut butter meatballs, even fried octopus on a stick for the more adventurous.
With your belly full, you can hop aboard a huge ferris wheel that has air conditioned glass cars for seats.
It weighs more than 600-thousand pounds, that’s more than a quarter of a ton, and it took 22 trucks to deliver the all the parts of the ferris wheel to the fairgrounds.
