On July 20th many of the Hope University students attended the Orange County Fair at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa California. Each year the O.C. Fair provides a day, called 'Friends of the Fair' Day where persons with disabilities get in free. We are so grateful to the O. C. Fair for providing this service for us all. The theme of the Fair this year was 'Let's Eat!' celebrating all of the wonderful Fair foods we love. The students and staff rode in a chartered bus to and from the Fair. Some of the things we saw were, rides, horses, sunflowers, vendors selling all sorts of things and food, lots of food!
Everyone had a lot of fun and can hardly wait to go back again next year. Thank you Orange County Fair for having 'Friends of the Fair' Day.
