Throwback Thursday: The 1960s L.A. County Fair

December 12, 2013

It’s the SkyRide that runs through the Broadway street nowadays but back in the 1960s and 70s a monorail used to transport guests around the grounds for a birds eye view of the entire Fair. Things sure have changed… but at least the Grandstand remains the same!

Throwback Thursday: The 1960s L.A. County Fair 


  1. Very sad to hear that live horse racing will be leaving Fairplex in 2014. It has been a part of my family’s early September fun for many generations. I discovered horse racing here and it is the cornerstone of my interest in horse racing. I will be boycotting any replacement (Los Alamitos) and not attending the County Fair either in protest as well. I hope that others join in. Very sad day.
