And, this is the final weekend of the Los Angeles County Fair, described as one of the largest county fairs in the country. There’s fair fun, fair rides, and fair food, but the most welcome sight for fairgoers this year might be the 8,000 square feet of new shading, hundreds of new umbrella tables, 200 yards of overhead water misters, plus extra air conditioning units blasting cool air on indoor exhibits.
The nonprofit county fair has invested about $500,000 to make sure visitors can find some respite when the mercury rises to that OMG level.
