With opportunities to ride elephants, interact with sharks and try the ever-so-daring fried Kool-Aid, the 89th annual Los Angeles County Fair has opened its doors and promises fairgoers a promising outing filled with adventure.
Open now through Oct. 2 at the Fairplex grounds in Pomona, the L.A. County Fair invites people of all ages to join the fun and festivities.
A handful of exciting and interactive exhibits dominate the grounds.
The Live Shark Encounter is a must-see exhibit. Located in building 5, this showcase allows audiences to witness the interaction between these real, sharp-toothed creatures and professional divers. While the exhibit is sure to draw a few gasps, it also serves as a genuine learning experience, as audience members are given the opportunity to increase their knowledge on various shark facts and myths.
For those who prefer the cute and cuddly, Esmeralda’s Traveling Circus is home to a variety of goats, donkeys, ducks, alpacas, pigs and more. The Great American Petting Zooallows young children to get close to these trained, well-adored animals.
The main attraction at Esmeralda’s Traveling Circus is the Elephants on Parade experience. For a small fee, families can ride one of two professionally trained elephants. Parents and children alike will squeal with delight as they ride high atop the enormous mammals.
Thrill-seekers will find no greater adventure than the 70 exhilarating carnival rides to choose from. The carnival section of the park also provides guests 40 entertaining games to take part in. There is a continuous feeling of excitement in the air as the fair guests navigate through multiple Ferris wheels, rollercoasters and fun houses.read more:
