L.A. County Fair 101: Here’s What You Need to Know!

The LA County Fair provided me with compensation for my time. As always, all opinions expressed in this post are mine. 

It’s that time of year again! Get ready to visit the L.A. County Fair!

I highly recommend visiting the big slide a few times, it’s so much fun!

There’s so much to see and do at the Fair. Don’t miss these other AWESOME ATTRACTIONS!

Love Niki Tip: The Wonderland Exhibit has so many beautiful flowers and whimsical settings! Be sure to swing by for a colorful experience and a mini escape from reality (and the heat)!


PREPARE FOR THE HEAT

STAY HYDRATED
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water while exploring the fair. As summer wraps up you’re likely to experience a very warm day during your visit.

PICK THE RIGHT OUTFIT
Choosing the right outfit will help you stay cool and enjoy the fair all day. I recommend wearing lightweight, breathable fabrics. Also, sunglasses and hats will keep the bright sun out of your eyes and off your face! I’ll be sharing a style post soon with more tips and an outfit idea.


INVITE FRIENDS & FAMILY

Like all fun activities, the fair is the most enjoyable when you have great company! So gather your loved ones and start planning your visit! Don’t forget to share your day with us by using the hashtags #DareToFair and #LACountyFair!
