The 2015 Palos Verdes Street Fair took place June 6th and 7th.  I’ve taken my family there the past few years and have had a blast every time we go.  The fair features carnival style rides for people of all ages, free petting zoo and pony rides, around 200 venders, live music and beer/food/wine.  The Palos Verdes Fair website claims that it is the largest fair in the South Bay and I can’t argue with that, it’s huge.

I snapped a few photos of the carnival rides area.  Maybe I’ll see you there next year! – Civic Couch
