It's summer and that means county fairs. While the LA County Fair is set to begin in September, Orange County's begins today and will run a longer one week longer than normal--through August 9th--because of a new schedule that closes the event on Mondays and Tuesdays.

This year's highlights include Duran Duran, Luche Libre, Kelly Clarkson, Heart, Rick Springfield, a myriad of deep fried food, a "Weird Al" Yankovic documentary premiere and a huge three-day Maloof skateboarding event.

It's $10 to get in, but a new $30 super pass gets you in for all 23 days of the event.
