Visiting the OC Fair with Little Ones {& Giveaway!}

see more by

My mom and I took the girls and one of Emma’s friends to the fabulous OC Fair last week at the Orange County Fairgrounds and since I am on a kick this week with doing lists I thought I will do one on my top 5 tips on visiting the fair with little ones! An outing like this can be crazy fun for the kids, but there are some things I might suggest to make it even that much more enjoyable. Plus, I also have two admission tickets and two ride passes to giveaway too! Make sure to read below and enter!

Top 5 Tips on Visiting the OC Fair with Little Ones

1. Plan your attack before you go. Before you even leave your house, you can click here and view the schedule for the day.  This way you can plan the things that you want to do the most and schedule your “route” accordingly. The Fair is BIG so you don’t want to be criss-crossing back and forth, better to plan your list of things to do and map it out ahead of time.

2. Don’t try to over-do it! It is a TON of fun and a LOT of stimulation for little ones, so don’t feel like you have to see everything.  The day we went, we first went to Kid Land for all the little kid rides (SO fun for ages 2+), then went to watch the pig races, after the races I let the girls run around in a little area with hay, then we went back through Kid Land as those rides were a HIT, got dinner by Kid Land, then on our way out went through Centennial Farm.  For my kids’ ages, this was a fun list of things to do!

3. Bring a stroller. Even the five-year-olds got tired so I kicked myself for not bringing my double jogger as I just brought a stroller for my two-year-old.  It is a lot of walking so I definitely recommend bringing strollers.

4. Bring a picnic blanket. We went late afternoon and it was crowded and there were no tables to sit and eat dinner on.  We sat on the grass which was no biggie, but I wish we had brought a picnic blanket as it would have been more comfortable.

5. Remember water, hats, sunscreen, anti-bacterial hand gel + baby wipes. It can get toasty so make sure to remember to drink a lot of fluids and protect your skin!  The pig races were also a bit dusty so I was glad I had my wipees and hand gel.

Click HERE to see the OC Fair discounts and promotions so you can check to see if anything is going on before you go. You can also visit www.ocfair.com for hours and pricing and all the information.

Most importantly, have a ball! The OC Fair is a family tradition and sure to be full of a ton of great memories!
