Yes, kudos to Orange County Fair & Event Center President and Chief Executive Steve Beazley and his "Team" for a job well done at this year's O.C. Fair ("Community Commentary: Vibe at this year's fair is best yet," Aug. 13). Not having attended the fair in over five years — and that was simply an in-and-out visit to see the B-52s perform at the Pacific Amphitheater — I must confess that I spent several hours one day walking around the fairgrounds and attending the night's musical concert.
I had a really fun time and came away very impressed with the efficient and friendly staff, and the clean and orderly way in which everything was being run.
Always professing in the past that I'm "just not a fair kinda gal," I was blindsided by a friend this year who didn't tell me that we were going to the fair until we were in the car and on the way there. I was only told to dress for cool weather and wear comfortable shoes for our outing.
