The L.A. County Fair

Have you always wanted to go to the county fairs for educating your children more then the rides and food, but never do because it is so blasted busy? Well, LA County fair has been giving away free tickets to the fair for years. Oh, and it is open early in the morning to school educators long before the general public comes in to play.

This is such a great opportunity for you to bring your children and learn about the animals, the insects, the plants and general farm type things.

I have been doing this for years now and love it! Yes there are large schools there too, but the crowds are not nearly what it is when the general public comes in. You may have to wait a minute or two to pet that cow, but that is nothing compared to when you go after they open to the public. You could have to stand in line for 15 or 20 minutes sometimes.

Anyway, here is the latest email from them to me for signing up. Please click on the link today before the tickets are gone. Remember this is FREE. The only cost is gas. Oh, I almost forgot to let you know. I bring my lunch with me so there is very little cost for food. Yea, I usually get a funnel cake. I just cannot help myself!!! 🙂 See you at the fair!
