Love is in the air at the OC Fair.

Costa Mesa (July 25, 2018) Love is in the air at the OC Fair.

It’s the perfect setting for a romantic evening. The backdrop of the Ferris wheel, a gorgeous summer sunset, nighttime entertainment and lots of sweet treats to share all set the mood for an unforgettable time with your favorite date.
If you’re looking to impress that special someone – whether it’s a first date or your 50th – here’s how to make your date night the fairest of them all.
Go big on the midway: That giant stuffed animal shows that you’re not only a great date, but you’re a winner! Play some games and win over the heart of your loved one with a big plush prize. With almost 50 games to choose from, the odds are definitely in your favor. Then, you can enjoy a romantic getaway on the Balloon Ride and hold hands while you dip and swerve on the Galaxy Coaster.
The sweetest things: Nothing says “I love you” quite like chocolate and dessert, and there are lots of both at the OC Fair. Share the sweetness with your date: funnel cakes, ice cream creations, unicorn pineapple bombs, cotton candy, fried Oreos and gorgeous milkshakes – with two straws, of course.
A special souvenir: Shop til’ you drop. With so many clothing, jewelry and art vendors all over the Fair, you’re bound to find something unique and special for your significant other. Check out the Carnival of Products, Parade of Products and Festival of Products and the romantic twinkly lights in the evening at Crafters Village are sure to help make the browsing even better.
Toast of the Fair: The Courtyard is an OC Fair hidden gem right in the Main Mall. The Orange County Wine Society’s special spot is the perfect place to toast your date with an award-winning wine. Raise a glass and savor a sip together.
Is it the real thing? Find out if this date is the start of something special. Visit one of our fortune tellers and ask about your future. This will certainly give you something to talk about for the rest of the evening, if not the rest of your lives.
A reminder of your special night: The classic photo booth shot is an OC Fair staple. Couples come back year after year to take the same picture – and later they even bring the kids to carry on the tradition. There are so many great selfie spots on the fairgrounds that you can’t miss, especially now that My Fair Selfie is open. Visit our pop-up palace of photo fun for 11 amazing backgrounds.
A kiss at the top of the Ferris wheel: It’s the perfect moment. The Ferris wheel takes you high above the Fair and you have the ultimate view and the ultimate opportunity to cap the evening with that memorable kiss. Maybe you can ride again next year and pop the question.
