The Ventura County Fair is open! Come and see in pictures!


The Ventura County Fair is OPEN!  Come and see the various events as they unfold here on my blog!  This ride scares me to death!


The MIDWAY at night!  The beach and ocean is in the dark area in the back!


The Midway during the day!


There will be Horse Shows by 4H!

The BIG Parade for the Fair on August 3rd in the city of Ventura!


One of my favorites!  I don't run and can't walk 5K due to my disability: Fibromyalgia and Degenerative Disc Disease but I can go and cheer them on and love seeing the costumes!!  Aug. 3rd early in the morning!


THROWBACK THURSDAY!!  Aren't these dolls incredible?




History of Ventura County Fair & Seaside Park
 The first Ventura County Fair was held in 1874. Prior to being
held at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, it was held at
Pierpont Bluffs and Hueneme, with the fair initially being
held in October, rather than August. In the early years,
the main attraction was horse racing.

In the 1970s, there was a plan to move the fair
to Camarillo, CA but that never happened.


The fair attracts more than 300,000 visitors each year.

I'm hoping to go on Tuesday, August 6th because it's not only SENIOR DAY but it is the day for the disabled (like me) as well.  I just need to get a wheelchair for this day.

My favorite ride has always been the ferris wheel. You get to see the whole park. I especially remember loving it at night with someone special sitting next to me!
