Orange County’s beloved OC Fair opened yesterday and will be entertaining kids and adults Wednesdays – Sundays now through August 14th.
From experience, if you have kids that love the rides, by far the best deal is to go on a Wednesday or Thursday and get the $30 unlimited wristband. Then it’s just done and you don’t have to worry about reloading your ticket or running out of rides. Best value for sure.
If planning the day of the week, Thursdays are great because kids get free admission all day, you can get the unlimited wristband AND take advantage of the $2 Taste of Fair food noon – 4p. Huge savings. We are going this Thursday (yay!) Follow our adventure on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
