Dare to Get Engaged: A Fair Proposal

The Fair is more than corn dogs, funnel cakes and baby animals! It is about spending time with your loved ones… and for fair goers Marissa and Christian, getting engaged.

We were so excited to be part of this special day and to capture it on camera. What better place to propose than on the top of a Ferris wheel over looking the Fair lights?

Congratulations to this happy couple! We’re glad you chose to get engaged at the Fair.

Fair Food Friday: Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Happy Fair Food Friday everyone! It’s the last weekend of the Fair, so here are some of  our sweetest treats to try before it’s too late!

1. Afters Ice Cream Milky Bun
Donuts are delicious. Ice cream is delicious. And when you put them together? Delicious. This milky bun from Afters Ice Cream is filled with their cookie monster ice cream and dipped in pieces of Oreos. 

2. Unicorn Nitro Pop
This pop corn is covered in colorful caramel and dunked in liquid nitrogen. Not only is it delicious, but it is fun too! Pop some in your mouth and watch as vapor comes out of your nose.

3. Conchita Ice Cream Sandwich
Mi Cafecito located in Mi Poco LA is serving up delicious ice cream sandwiches on conchitas and orejitas. Horchata ice cream on pan dulce makes for a great combination to satisfy that sweet tooth.

4. Mexican Funnel Cake
Mexican funnel cake puts a sweet twist on the traditional fair funnel cake. Made with churros and topped with whipped cream, this is a great dessert to share with the family… or enjoy it all on your own!

5. Fabes shakes
Check out these Insta-worthy shakes! What could be wrong with a mason jar full of your favorite flavored shake topped with whip cream and a whole donut? You need a jumbo straw for this one!

Want to see where you can find these sweet treats? Dowload our app where you can search for the food you’re craving. The LA County Fair mobile app is available in the iTunes App Store and Android Marketplace.

What will you be trying at the Fair this weekend?

Giveaway + The Little Red Barn [Contest Closed]

Hey fair fans!

What’s cuter than animals? Miniature animals! And the Little Red Barn is full of them.

From miniature pigs and donkeys, to baby doll sheep and pygmy goats, the Little Red Barn will definitely make you wish you lived on a farm.

If you don’t feel like this little pig after you went to the Fair, did you really go to the Fair?

This cow jumped over the moon and found his way to the LA County Fair.

What goes better with mini animals than nursery rhymes? This is one of our favorite. We even have mother goose hanging out with a miniature hen, which is sure to take you back to your childhood readings of The Little Red Hen storybooks.

Come visit these miniature pals in the Farm at the Little Red Barn. They are waiting to greet you with snorts and hee-hawing.

***WE HAVE 3 WINNERS***

Congratulations to our winners Gregory Kenyota, Tiana Mitchell and Alexandra Razo for being selected as our winners. Gregory said the baby sheep are his favorite, Tiana enjoys watching the racing pigs and Alexandra Razo loves the baby chicks because they are so fluffy.

Thank you everyone for playing!
