This Giveaway is now closed: Congrats to the winner Jen LoSchiavo. Thank you all for entering.

I’m not one to attend New Year’s Eve parties, but last year I attended the OC Fair’s New Year’s Eve Block Party and had the absolute time of my life with my husband. We hired a babysitter, dressed warmly and danced and ate the night away.

The OC Fair New Year’s Eve Block Party returns this year again to the OC FAir and promises to be even better than last year. The New Year’s Eve Party is a fun and casual party with plenty of tribute bands and dance music from the 60’s to the 90’s. We spent most of our time in the 80’s tribute area listening to Richard Blade from KROQ DJ and a Smith’s cover band perform. We seriously had such a fun time! To view a list of the live entertainment you can head here.
