COSTA MESA — Although the Orange County Fairgrounds' future seems uncertain, one thing is for sure: "The Beat Goes On."
That's the theme of this year's Orange County Fair, which runs July 16 to Aug. 15. And the message is meant to reassure fairgoers that no matter what happens, the annual event will continue.
"This is the theme of reassurance, and I think it's what people need right now for a number of reasons," said Steve Beazley, fairgrounds chief executive. "Not just the uncertainty of the fair, but the uncertainty of the economy, the uncertainty of society. These are greatly changing times right now."
