L.A. County Fair In Full Swing Until Sept. 30
Cerritos-Artesia Patch - over 4 years
The 90th anniversary edition of the Los Angeles County Fair began its 24-day run at Fairplex in Pomona Friday, featuring a mix of new and traditional attractions.
The anniversary was marked with an opening day parade featuring 94-year-old Happi Moore, who has attended every fair, and throughout the fair with an exhibit at the Millard Sheets Center for the Arts chronicling its highlights, "Celebrating 90 Years."
Under the theme, "Genius, A Celebration of American Innovation," the fair will pay tribute to nearly 50 significant innovators and inventors. It will include a replica of George Washington Carver's classroom on wheels, original Thomas Edison artifacts, facades of the shops and buildings where Benjamin Franklin lived, and an original Model T.
"Stingray Island," a 17,000-gallon enclosure, will feature an 8-foot waterfall, stingrays, sharks, octopus, eels, with marine biologists fielding questions about them.
