Fair care: Tips for a great OC Fair experience

The Ferris wheel is up and ready! That can only mean one thing — the Orange County Fair is about to start! Beginning July 15-August 14, the OC Fair is a summer tradition and only a short drive from Azulon at Mesa Verde in Costa Mesa! Here are some quick tips to ensure a wonderful experience is in store for you. Advanced ticket purchase is now required so plan ahead. Tickets are only valid for the date purchased. Plan to arrive early to get decent parking. The Fair is incredibly popular. Make sure to bring sunscreen. The nearby CVS drug store has various kinds of sunscreen, so find the one you prefer and use it. That So Cal sun is sure to shine brightly! Also, make sure to wear a hat and sunglasses. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes too. You’ll be doing a lot of walking, so it’s important to be comfortable during the summer heat. Check with your preferred medical doctor to make sure being in the heat is okay. Another tip is to plan what you want to see ahead of time. Check out the schedule of events so you can pick and choose what you want to enjoy besides all the traditional carnival rides, games, and attractions. Have fun!
