Giveaway: L.A. County Fair family fun pack!

The L.A. County Fair is rolling out its signature Ferris Wheel on Sept. 5, and more than the usual suspects will be there.

In addition to rides, hot dogs, cotton candy, hypnotists, acrobats and bands, the County Fair, at Fairplex in Pomona through Oct. 4, will be showing off a few more attractions -- which sound more like really cool, hands-on museum exhibits than anything I've ever seen at a fair. (Can't wait to see how CC enjoys them!)

Under the Sea will invite kids to explore a shark cage, a kelp forest and a science discovery lab.

Alex the Alligator will be among the hosts of Jurassic Planet, an exhibit that includes a T-Rex Learning Camp and fossil exploration.

Water-spraying elephants will greet visitors at Gateway to Africa. Kids will learn about the pachyderms, as well as giraffes and the flora and fauna that are native to the continent.

Best of all, I'm giving away a family four-pack of tickets plus a reusable L.A. County Fair bag.

Here's how you can enter:

1. Leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite fair food.


2. Follow me on Twitter (I'm @la_story) and send me a message/direct message letting me know your favorite fair food.


3. Leave me a comment on this post AND follow me/send me a message via Twitter letting me know if you like cotton candy or funnel cakes (or anything else), and I'll enter your name TWICE!

I'll announce a winner Friday, Sept. 4.

Good luck!

Ok I don't know much about fair food because I haven't been to many fairs! Can you believe it? Anyways by what I've seen in those little fairs, if they have corn on the cob that's my top favorite. And after that something sweet, I want to try a funnel cake ;)

My first thought was also corn on the cob but with lots of yummy stuff on it! But to be original ;) I´ll also add kettle corn..a giant bag of it!

My family and I enjoy different foods at the fair. My husband likes the BBQ, my son likes BBQ ribs, my daughter likes pretzels and pickles and I like cheese sticks! We enjoy looking at the exhibits and animals and drinking lemonade.
