LA County Fair - gastronomical & animal lovers paradise

A couple of days to the final closing of the LA County Fair....







Day was filled with












eye-popping
gastronomical
adventures...






walking shoes
fit for marching...

















































































Atms are available....




Oil drenched food fantasy - deep fat fried avocados....


























































smokin' grills






















What more could bacon need....ok, chocolate.

And did I really see

all that you can eat....
















It's a one-stop eat all you can kind of day...











Fun in the fun zone.








loopy making.
















































I had an all time fav...


Mackinac Island Fudge
...quickly eaten.






























































































































Slides, aerial
views

















































































Gargantuan serpents, puffed up Pikachus,




and Batman takes on Superman










































































































South parked for monkey business








































































Families
embrace the
mother love
of the mama
pig,





































ninnies, calves and


















a panoply of piglets






























































































































Off to the races....squeals and thunderous applause....


























































































































































































































































Grand stand holds the food fair and prizes for luscious confections



















and more monkey business.























Said S. from South Pasadena wins with her
marzipan cheese plate
and monkey cake.






Clydesdales are stationed in the cool tents..





























































































































































































Everybody is a winner here.



Get out and have your fun.
