Luminasia and the LA County Fair 2014

Growing up, my family would visit the LA County Fair just as the 
new school year would begin each September.

Besides the rides, entertainment, and of course food, 
we would see the new exhibits the fair would have each year.

This year, Luminasia is a new nighttime attraction.
It's a larger-than-life Chinese lantern display,
which is an ancient art form of lantern making.

At the LA County Fair Media Preview to see
Luminasia and sample the new fair food for 2014.

Heading up the Luminasia hill,
the gateway is impressive.

It reminded me of breakfast,

Just a few of the famous landmarks
at Luminasia.

These lanterns were handmade by 50 artisans who
traveled more than 7,000 miles from Zigong, China.

As we're admiring the craftsmanship,
it was time to sample some of the new food items
The Krispy Kreme Doughnut Triple Cheeseburger
from Chicken Charlie's 

 Zucchini with Bacon wrapped around,
served with Ranch dressing,
from Chicken Charlie's.

I loved the crunchy bacon!

That's some BIG Food!

This was just a small sampling

It's an awesome exhibit
and hard to believe that it's all made by hand.
Worth seeing during the LA County Fair!

Until September 28th

Thank You!
