Opens September 3rd - October 2, 2011 at the Pomona Fairplex
Los Angeles is one of the largest cities in the United States with 3,792,621 people living here. So when the fair comes to town it is a must see. Comfortable shoes are a must!
It is located in the city of Pomona. Nearby cities are Diamond Bar, Covina and Chino Hills. It's main freeway access is the (10) Interstate highway. The best advice is to arrive early and bring lots of snacks and water. Have a plan as to what you want to do first and where you want to eat. Once you get there and see the great places, your plan may become blurry. Here is a checklist of things you might want to bring:
- Fruit Snack
- Hat, sunscreen
- Sun Glasses
- Child like imagination
- Fun comfortable clothes

Second head to your favorite event or show first. Make sure you check the times for attractions, competititions, concerts and show. Plan around your favorite event times to maximize your fun. Be flexible and on time. So you get seating or a good view of the event. Most of all have fun and enjoy yourself. Try to see all the fun exhibits that people have worked so hard to put together. My favorite is the Family Fun Days.
