With New Years Eve quickly approaching, I am sure many of you are looking for fun events to attend.  Every year, I try to do something different and last year was no exception.  Last year for New Years Eve, I attended the OC Fair New Year’s Eve Block Party at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, California and we all had a blast!  I would first like to give a little background about the Orange County Fairgrounds.

The OC Fairgrounds is a large piece of land centrally located in Orange County that houses the Orange County Fair year after year and there are also a multitude of different events held at the OC fairgrounds throughout the year. Some weekly events include the swapmeet every weekend, food trucks every Thursday for lunch, and a farmer’s market on Saturday mornings.  In addition to these weekly activities, there are also events that occur for every hobby you can imagine.  I have grown up going to the jewelry shows there with my mom and as a young girl in girl scouts, I participated in the Youth Expo selling crafts for my troop, as well as performing karaoke in 1987. I also performed in a singing and dancing group called Kids Are Music in August 1986. (See Photo below) 🙂

Last year when we attended the OC Fair Block Party, there was a variety of different gourmet food trucks, several different bands performing, DJ’s, areas to dance, and carnival rides.  We had a blast walking around to the different venues to hear the many different styles and genres of music, eating different types of foods from different gourmet food trucks, and of course getting our buzz on by hitting up the many different cash bars that were spread out throughout the venue.  We did not end up taking advantage of any of the carnival rides.

We had a blast dancing the night away in one room that had a DJ with popular top 40’s style music and we spent the countdown at midnight watching the 80’s band, Flashback Heart Attack with lead singer, Don Bronze.  They are always a fun band to see, as they play at local bars in Orange County weekly, including the White House in Laguna Beach on Saturday nights and The Harp Inn in Costa Mesa on Friday nights.  They also do private parties and large events, such as the block party last year.  This assures me that the bands are top notch as year, there is a whole new exciting lineup to see. See website for details.
