Throwback Thursday: The LA County Fair of the 1950s

Have you ever wondered what going to the LA County Fair looked like a decade or five ago? We found this gem on YouTube the other day and had to share!

Take a look at both the San Diego Fair and the LA County Fair of the 1950s in this video, covering everything from animal exhibits to community competitions and beyond. Enjoy!

Special thanks to YouTube user Jeff Quitney for sharing on his channel!

2016 LA County Fair Recap

Whew! The 2016 LA County Fair was a whirlwind of fun and adventure, which we documented over on our Fair blog, Hot Blog On A Stick.

In case you missed it, here are some of our favorite moments from the Fair this year:
