Looks like you'll be getting your candy apple this year!
The Orange County Fair was canceled last year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but they are planning to return this year! Officials just announced dates and the fair is scheduled for July 16th through August 15th! The theme of the fair this year is called "Time for Fun." At this time OC Fair officials are working with public health experts to come up with protocols to keep guests and workers safe.
According to officials, things could change if there is another surge. All fairgoers must get tickets in advance and there will be limited capacity to allow for social distancing, face masks must be worn.
Tickets will go on sale starting May 1st on the fair's website.
CEO of OC Fair & Event Center, Michele Richards stated "We have worked through many different scenarios for the 2021 OC Fair and we are so excited to move forward with this plan because it means that we really can bring back the fun, and that's why I love this year's theme. We want everyone to continue to follow health guidelines and get vaccinated so we can finally celebrate summer together again.''
