This year San Diego County Fair had 1.561.236 guests in a wonderful candy land with the theme ‘’How sweet It Is’’ that lasted for 26 days.
People came to the fair in bright candy colors to match the theme. Vendors offered exclusive ‘’unicorn food’’: cotton candy ice cream sandwiches to colorful kettle corn.
The fair began in 1880. It brought San Diego County farmers together to share ideas, compete for the best pies and citrus fruits, as well as horse races.
No doubt that it was too much fun for attendees. It’s enough to take a look at the numbers.
