Orange County Fair 2006 Is "Flower Power" (Page One)
This year the fair is open from 7/7-7/20. We went three times this year. The camera was not working so we missed pictures of opening day but the NEW camera is going like gangbusters. The second time this season was with the Porters. We went on closing day to say goodbye to the fair
Spring has sprung and summer is here which, of course, means the annual OC Fair is right around the corner. The 2006 OC Fair promises to be bigger and better than ever as we salute "Flower Power," and the year of the garden. The Fair will blossom with stunning floral exhibits as well as with exciting new entertainment offerings along with some old favorites.
In celebration of our theme, Centennial Farm will be in full bloom with overflowing beds of ripe produce and flowers. Additionally, fairgoers can keep track of their day with the massive flower clock on the slope outside Pacific Amphitheatre. And then if that's not enough, there's the Floral and Garden Gallery, and the Floral Pavilion. In case this all seems daunting and you think you might miss something, just look for the three twelve-foot garden gnomes to guide you.
To further our "green" theme, the Fuel Cell Exhibit, presented by the National Fuel Cell Research Center at the University of California, Irvine, will demonstrate the functionality and the possible applications of fuel cells. The exhibit arrives at the OC Fair after being visited by almost two million guests when it premiered at the 2005 World Exposition in Aichi, Japan
