OC Fair Food Drive-Thru enters final weeks

The drive-up OC Fair food fun is entering its final two weeks with a fresh lineup of vendors. Now’s the time to make plans to get those funnel cakes, turkey legs and deep-fried treats on a stick.

The OC Fair Food Drive-Thru takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through October 25 at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa. Hours are 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sundays. There are no parking or entrance fees. Guests enter the fairgrounds at Gate 1 off of Fair Drive, drive up and order from the vendors; some take credit cards only.
