IMPERIAL COUNTY, Calif. – One of the main attractions this year is a giant Ferris wheel that stands 120-feet tall, so if you’ve never been one, this is the year to hop on at the 107th Annual California Mid-Winter Fair and Fiesta.
“We have a combination of the elements people love to have, the animals, the food, the rides, the exhibits, but they all have an interesting new twist.” said Theresa Garcia, who is the fair CEO.
Fair board members say they have made sure to bring plenty of new attractions in all shapes and sizes. For those of you who say the fair can get messy; the ground has been repaved and is ready to be broken in.
“We have a beautiful new surface, obviously it makes it a cleaner deal so we don’t have the dust to work with,” said Board Member Bo Shropshire. “We are really proud of this thing and it’s taken us a long time to get this done and literally we got it done about 20-days ago.”
Organizers say they hope to see everyone in the county out at the fair this year and proudly announce that tickets cost the same as 20-years ago.
“We have not changed our gate prices since 1997. It’s $8 to get in as an adult and right now until Thursday it’s a $6 deal.” said Shropshire.
The fair will have its doors open starting this Friday until March 8th.
