LA County Fair: Week One

LA County Fair

The LA County Fair enters its first week. What will you ride/do/eat/see?

A county fair is many things -- bright, swirly, sticky, oinky, laughy, repeat -- but it is never static.

Sure, that turn-you-upside-down ride that you rode on opening day will be in the same spot when it closes, and all of the blue-ribbon paintings and quilts and vases will remain on display throughout.

But the schedule changes up each and every day, a little, which means that some people return to the fair multiple times.

Are you a first-weeker? Meaning you've got to go Pomona right away? Here's what's up during the very first days of the Los Angeles County Fair...

$1 Admission on Monday, Sept. 2: This is the final day of the one-buck get-in fee, or, rather, make it the final morning. The offer is good through 1 p.m. Go, go! Oh, and the concert? The Bangles, Berlin, and The Motels. 

Tuesday, Sept. 3: The fair is closed.

Wednesday, Sept. 4: It's five bucks after 5 p.m. (courtesy of Circus Circus).

Thursday, Sept. 5: The Brothers Johnson and Rose Royce are on the big stage. It's a School Supply Drive day at the fair, too.

Friday, Sept. 6: Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys are the music men of the night. It's also Food Drive Friday for the better part of the afternoon.

Saturday, Sept. 7: Active and retired military members (as well as reserves, firefighters, police, paramedics) get in for a dollar as part of A Day for Heroes. Ke$ha is the headlining performer. And the to-dos? The ongoing presentations are worth a stop-by. Three that intrigue include the gold medal extra virgin olive oil tasting, Esmeralda's Traveling Circus, and, of course, Daisy Cow's milking demonstrations, a must-see during any day out at the agro-tacular.

Sunday, Sept. 8: Los Tigres del Nortre is the big band of the night. Other fun to-dos include the pig races, the beer tasting, the tablescape admiring, the midway, those little chairs that massage your feet, the winning of over-sized plush animals, the petting of real animals. 

(Everything aforementioned constitutes approximately 14% of what the fair offers, of course.)
