    A Day at the L.A. County Fair

    Greetings Micechatters.

    I spent today at the L.A. County Fair. Even though it wasn't as hot as it was a couple of weeks ago...it was still hot.

    Here are some photos from my day. Enjoy



























    These two little guys to the right were play fighting...it was cute.
























    My son loved the insect exhibit...*shivers* BEWARE scary critters ahead.....


















    Ok I was done with all those creepy crawlies. They also had centipedes and millipedes to touch...blegh..no thanks!

    Onto the veggies and bee/honey exhibit....









    A familier face makes an appearance....





    Back to the animals......





    Can YOU see the Ostrich here?






    Cows and the Milking exhibit....
















    Chickens and Rabbits













    Porcupine



    Moving on.....













    I saw this in one of the selling buildings.....yeah for princess costumes! ha!













    Uh...lunch time?



    I ventured into the baking and cooking and crafts exhibit building. Remarkable, some of the talent in these rooms. I took photos of my favorite exhibits.

































    Then I met up with ksejr1 at the race track.....





    Lastly it was onto the Flower and Garden exhibit, which were my favorite.





























    On the way out of the Flower and Garden exhibit building we caught a bungee jumper....



    Then it was time to pass a roasting pig.....




    Then onto home...I was tired....

    Thanks for reading!

    Sounds like you had a fun day. Didn't you do the wonderland or the wine tasting, those are your favorites.

    LA has a pretty fancy fair, looks as big as the CA State Fair in Sacramento.

    I love that they had Highland cows there, my mom loves them because they're so fuzzy. I love them because they make a great alternative to lamb for haggis

    Great pics!

    It's always fun seeing fairs from other areas.

    I'm surprised to see a whole pig being BBQ'd for public viewing. Looks painful too...

    We watched as a lamb was born before our eyes at our fair last June. There was enough blood to make a horror movie. The kids were amazed.

    Thanks for sharing!

    The whole pig roasting wold have really upset me. Seeing the picture was bad enough. Thanks for sharing your pictures. The only thing that looked familiar from 20 years ago is the race track. I think that may have been all we did....

    Great shots!

    That last one was a real eye-opener...
    You get the whole Before and After effect.


    Those princess costumes looked pretty, um, mature.

    Well I had my son with me, it was just me and him so no wine tasting for me... But I did pass by there to see...lots of happy laughing people...and security.

    Yeah...the roasting pig was a bit of a shocker to me to. I was like "huh?"

    The costumes...yes, were in a costume booth selling quite mature women costumes....
