Last call for Cinnamon Maple Bacon Bombs! The OC Fair closes out this weekend with the crash and bang of demolition derbies, as well a concert from Live & Bush.

Whether your taste tends to be peanut butter, jelly, and Sriracha funnel cake, or you're more of the deep-fried filet mignon type, the OC Fair has your order waiting.

The huge county fair is sure to attract enormous crowds with attractions that include animals, live entertainment, tons of food, carnival rides, and much more. And yes, fans of the deep fried Oreo will not be disappointed.Thursdays are Kids Days; children 12 and under receive free admission every Thursday all day. Check the website for other promotions (including free carnival rides for kids who read two or more books and free admission the first hour on opening day).
