Tea Time in San Diego

About 6 month(s) ago by Ayres Hotels

Anytime from Friday, June 3rd to Monday, July 4th, take part in the SoCal area’s month-long summer tradition at its 2016 San Diego County Fair at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Become immersed into the fair’s large-scale tea party for this year’s theme “Mad About the Fair” in honor of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Every Sunday, there will be Tea Time in Wonderland in the fair’s immaculate Paul Ecke Jr. Garden Show. During these 90-minute tea parties, you will enjoy proper Wonderland tea and also be able to make a fun party hat to take home. Don’t be shy and join in on the theme’s fun by wearing a costume to the fair. There will be daily costume contests to compete in!

Another new attraction to this year’s San Diego County Fair will be an exhibit called California Grown. The interactive exhibit shows how California farming began, how it is now, and what it may be like in the future.
