    Anybody Up For A Meet-Up At the VC Fair? Especially Mon 8/4, Beach Boys Night?

    The Ventura County Fair is a really cool one, in many senses of the word. It's kind of throwback to the bigger fairs to the sotheast in SoCal when they weren't quite so big!

    Anyway, here's a link to the website, and all the activities running this Wednesday, July 30, to Sunday August 12.

    I'm going to the Beach Boys show (I know, surprise) on the 4th (that's a Monday). On that or any other day - anybody interested in coming up?

    Sure! I'm not sure what day I'll be going. I'll keep a watch on this thread. Likely days are Thursday of this week or next.

    Any chance you could make it on Monday?

    So far, we are a meet of...two.

    I was thinking at least some other MCers would indicate an interest...those that can actually make it, I mean...Maye if folks could look past the fact that I might actually be there...

    I'm happy with a meet of two. I can do Monday. I have no interest in the concerts this year, so I'll be getting there at gate open (taking the train!), and leaving on the last train south of the evening at 7:30.

    Apparently, that's what we'll have...although I'm definitely open.

    Since I'm driving, I aim to get there between 2 and 4pm (hopefully before they close the Fairgrounds lot) because I don't like their shuttles). And I want to get in line early for the grandstand.

    Please PM me if you can so we can get in touch...)

    And I'm still up for a meet later this week if anyone would like!

    Alpha and I had a great time at the fair, just hanging out, eating roasted corn, checking out the exhibits.

    I had a great time! I have pics...I may post a report. Haven't done that in a while.

    She had to leave, but I stayed to see the Beach Boys - they were great as always.

    Sorry we haven't been able to drum up more interest for more people to come up...the Fair does run through Sunday.

    It was and I did! Free with admission to the Fair, and I even had a freebie from the radio station for that!

    The Ventura County Fair is a nice fair that's grown, but not so much that it's lost it's local flavor.

    It's got a lovely setting - directly overlooking Surfer's Point - they say that they are the only Fair that is directly adjacent to the coastline.

    It's main drawback - the parking. The Seaside Park parking lot is not nearly sufficient...and the shuttle buses and train service are ot enough to make up for it.
