    Thank you for the pictures. Tinkmomma and I are thinking of going soon with the kids. We haven't been to the SD Fair in over 7 years. Usually we do the OC Fair, but this year she is due around it's opening and the baby will be too small to take to fair. I'll still go with the older ones, but she won't make it. So SD Fair is pretty much our 1 shot at having a family fair experience this year.

        Shame you didn't get pics of the rides... the Del Mar fair is the only SoCal fair that i know of that partly uses a different vendor, leading to rides you don't see at the OC or LA fair. Was there anything new this year?
        Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

            The Fun Zones at the SD County Fair are what is referred to in the business as an independent midway. There is on the SDCF staff a person who books the best available rides and games. The last time I checked it represents over a dozen different shows and independent operators from all over the country (an independent operator is a person or company that specializes in one particular type of attraction. There may be just one, or several examples that are booked in at various fairs).

              ^Thanks for the detail! Are there any other fairs in SoCal that operate the same way?

                Frog legs..wow.

                Oh, and nice prize. I think that's Tails from Sonic.

                  To the best of my current knowledge, this is the only fair on the West Coast that uses this system. It's actually done more with state fairs. As far as square footage and number of rides and attractions the SDCF is as large as many state fairs (larger than some).

                      you are correct. it is tails
                      seems the prizes were tails for the large group, Sonic,shadow and Silver for the XL prizes ( which few people were carrying all over the fair)

                        It will always be the Del Mar Fair to me..... I was sad when they changed the name, many locals still call it the Del Mar Fair.....

                        I'll probably skip this year, no car and transit from South Bay area takes too long...

                        Looks like its gonna be a good fair this year.

                          I was in San Diego and the radio announcer kept saying "Caller five gets a pack of tickets" but I wasn't a local and I didn't try to win. Did I see it off the 5 freeway on Friday night? Or was that a pier? I saw a ferris wheel west of the 5.
