Well, not exactly. The Orange County Fair is teaming up with Goodwill Industries for a promotion that all you Orange County thrift’n-istas should not miss. On this Wednesday, August 3, between noon and 4pm, anyone that donates five gently used clothing items can get one free admission to the Orange County Fair, plus one free carnival ride. This is a great deal for those who have been waiting to experience this year’s OC Fair but have to watch those pennies. Bring in enough used clothing items, and every member of your party can get in free of charge.
As usual, the 2011 Fair is chock full of carnival rides, shows, displays, and of course all those foods you love, from funnel cakes to deep fried ANYTHING (the appropriate theme of the fair this year is “Let’s Eat!”). Wednesday August 3 at the fair showcases performers Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, Purple Reign- A Prince Tribute, plus BMX and skate competitions in the ASA Sports World Tour group. This is in addition to the everyday fair activities such as the petting zoo, the carnival rides, and the livestock shows (where yes, the pigs may share your clothes… just kidding! But then again, you may want to check out the OC Fair Pig Cam to make sure those piggies are not really wearing any donated clothing…it could happen!) Bringing five used clothing items will get you in to the OC Fair to see all these things and more- for free.
So thrift’n-istas, clean out your closets, help Goodwill Industries, and get into the OC Fair for free- Wed August 3. For more fair information: http://www.ocfair.com/2011/.
