Antelope Valley Fair

To All Del Air Members and Interested Guests:

This is a reminder that myself, Bob Knox and Richard Haering will be entering 4 competitive cases in the Antelope Valley Fair this year. One of these cases will be a club case and this will be the first time that the Del Air's have been represented at this fair. This is the 70th Annual celebration of this fair and I have been a competitive displayer here for the past four years. I encourage all to attend as I feel it is the best fair around. Smaller than the LA County Fair and larger than the Ventura County Fair, the Antelope Valley fair has something for everyone.

I realize everyone must thinking its too hot or too far away but it really is no farther than the Ventura fair and to beat the heat, each year, I arrive around 5:30 pm as the fair is open till midnight. I first check out all the attractions and displays in the air conditioned buildings and by the time I am through, the sun has gone down and the breeze has kicked in and the desert evening turns out to be quite enjoyable and comfortable.

The fair is located at the new Antelope Valley Fairgrounds:
2551 West Avenue H, Lancaster, CA 93536
Take the I-14 freeway north to Avenue H exit and turn left. You can't miss it.

The Antelope Valley Fair is open this year from Friday August 22nd through Monday September 1st 2008. They are open from 12 noon till midnight on the weekends and from 4:00 pm till midnight midweek.

Admission is:
$8.00 for adults 12 yrs and older
$5.00 for juniors 6 to 11 yrs and seniors 62 yrs and above
$Free for children under 6 with paid adult and for active military with military ID

Parking is $5.00

So join us at the fair and check out our Rock and Gem exhibits as well as everything else the fair has to offer. Hope to see you there!!
