I'm so late on this post, ha! But last weekend was a trip down to the LA County Fair! I went with my good friend, Em, and a club on campus. It was so incredibly hot, but the fair was a ton of fun.
The first thing we did was go half-sies on one of these giant turkey legs. I've never had one before and while I'm still not a huge fan of turkey, I can happily check that one off my list of things to eat. It took us quite a while to get through and I don't think I'll be eating turkey again for a while. hahaha. 1 point for me, 0 for Turkey! Though, in all fairness, Em ate most of it.
We went into the fair with four goals to achieve by the end of the day.
1. EAT SOMETHING FRIED. Because what kind of fair would it be without trying something strangely deep-fried?
Ta-dah! We opted for fried kool-aid, which I know sounds rather disgusting. Yet nonetheless it was surprisingly decent...think of extremely chewy dough-nut holes with a tangy fruity kick. Our second and third goals were to get a photobooth strip and snap a photo of the both of us together. We're both usually off on our own, taking pictures of random things, so we never get one together. We did get a photo together, though we didn't get a chance to stop by in a photobooth. Success nonetheless!
There were so many animals at the fair! I couldn't get a decent picture of any of them aside from the budweiser horses. Sadness. I need a better camera eventually!
I left with a couple straws of fresh flavored honey! Four for only a buck, how could I not? Flavors ranged from original clover to apple, grape or even pina colada. Of the ones I picked out, I've only tried the blueberry so far. Boy, is that stuff super sweet!
(The sun setting at the horse show.)
Stopped by this little stand so a friend could pick up some roasted corn! So many shops of food! Honestly, if it wasn't all so expensive, I would have bought it all.
As bustling as the fair had been in the afternoon, it really came to life once the sun started to set. All the lights flipped on and the crowds came rushing in. And the temperature finally dropped, thank goodness!
(Sorry for bad picture quality, snapped it while I was walking)
4. GET SOMETHING COLD. Our last goal was to get some sort of a frozen dessert or treat since there were so many ice cream/gelato/shaved ice stands all over the fair. Though in the end, we opted for stopping by Half & Half for some milk tea and boba on the way home. That technically counts, right?
Coincidentally, Hai ended up going to the fair that night too, an hour after I left back home. What a copy cat! Kidding. Kidding. Anyways, it was so nice to get out of my cubicle dorm room and go somewhere. Any of you head to the fair this summer??
