    The OC fair is a huge deal to me, I cannot WAIT to take my daughter to the fair for her first time. We’re going either on the 28th or 29th – I wish either of those days were get in free days!

      Awwwww! Me and my daughter go every year. This is the first time I have some money. But I still look for s deal. Search for “DISCOUNTS AND DEALS” on the OC FAIR web site. At the bottom you will find the OCTA’s “OC FAIR FLYER EXPRESS” gives rides every FRI SAT & SUN from the santa ana train depot and 4 other locations + bus driver gives you a $2 addmission coupon! FREE PARKING, $1.50 ea way, only 60¢ for seniors. I’m going again next weekend! My kid didn’t go on any rides last sunday. We went more for mom. She loves to get sum fried fish. If fried fish where a ride, she’d buy a wrist band. By the way, wrist bands are only sold wed and thurs til 5 pm, valid til 9 pm. Have fun with your girl!!! Awwww! Wish my girl was little again.
