Who says there isn't healthy food at the Orange County Fair? On Saturday, there were plenty of apples to go around — for stacking, that is.
The Fun Zone, adjacent to The Hangar, hosted an Apple Stacking Contest. There wasn't any trouble drawing a crowd, with about 70 onlookers and a continuous line of excited kids in tow.
The "Minute To Win It"-inspired contest challenged teams of two to stack five apples on top of each other in 60 seconds without having it topple over.
There seemed to be a common response from most contestants: Stacking apples is not as easy as it looks.
Jake Mattox, 9, had a strategy in mind.
"You have to make it stable," he said.
When a stack didn't work, he said, he would flip each apple. Jake and his brother Kyle, both from Santa Clarita, attempted the challenge but couldn't get it standing in 60 seconds.
