The Fair has been known by three names during its history: The San Diego County Fair from 1880 to 1953 and from 2002 to present, the Southern California Exposition and San Diego County Fair from 1954 to 1969, the Southern California Exposition from 1970 to 1982, and the Del Mar Fair from 1983 through 2001. These names are sometimes reflected in the theme.
The theme this year is Music Mania.
Stages were all over, usually with a band playing.
The headliners of the day were the B-52's.
Here they are doing "Roam", one of my favorite songs they do.
I'm the wife of a Marine, mom to two beautiful kids, and a full time volunteer. Most of my time goes to either the kids' school or the the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society where I help out in their Thrift Shop. I'm also a stamper and a photographer. I would also love to be a horseback rider (again) but have no time!
