L.A. County Fair Gives Back To It’s Surrounding Communities
By: Starr Session and Princess Manasseh
There are just days left of the L.A. County Fair but it seems the fun is far from over. True to tradition the fair is offering a variety of delights including: elephant rides, thrilling roller coasters, live bands, and just about anything you can think of deep fried (from pickles to ice cream)!
The fair also publicizes taking pride in the surrounding communities, many of which are in the SGV. On the website lacountyfair.com presenters of the fair express a concern for the community, “our sense of social responsibility guides our decisions on growth and development…We are dedicated to investing in our collective future.”
Year after year to prove their interest in community discounted admission is offered to residents of a particular city on a rolling schedule in what are called “community days.” On your community day, if you arrive to the grounds before 5 pm you can get in for a whooping $5 bucks with a coupon. Today’s community day is for residents of Walnut/Rancho Cucamonga. Tomorrow, which is the last Friday of the fair is community day for Covina/Fontana.
Each cities designated day features a festive Community Day parade and prestigious high school marching band competition. There is an Adult and Junior Community Hero Presentation and a host of other special events. Do you have hometown spirit? Well if so, you can also support your civic officials, business leaders, volunteers, unsung heroes, local talent and outstanding young people on this very special day.
This past weekend Nicole Gutteriez a law student over at Loyola Law School enjoyed her community day for a low price of $5 dollars and raved about the fair exclaiming it was her, “Best night!” she teased that the, ”LA Fair equals a fat persons delight! All the food I’ve ever imagined & I’m gonna try it all! Especially the fried butter recommended by Oprah!,” If Oprah gives her stamp of approval then you know it must be some good food paired with some good fun over at the L.A. County Fair.
We know the SGV has hometown spirit, and with only a couple of cities left to show their enthusiasm we encourage you take friends and family to the fair.
