SoCal Fair To Be Sold

A board in Southern California has approved a resolution to sell off the Orange County Fair and an event center in the midst of the state’s budget crisis.

The board originally panned the sale, proposed months ago by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, but officials eventually embraced the idea to sell the property to a nonprofit with the assurance that it would remain unchanged.

A handful of board members reportedly have plans to form a nonprofit to purchase the property.
