Fair goes ‘mad’ for the magic of ‘Alice in Wonderland’

San Diegans are surely going to go “mad” for the San Diego County Fair this year.

This year’s theme is “Mad About the Fair,” fusing the magical adventure of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” with the artistic movement known as Steampunk.

“This year, we have gone completely mad — absolutely bonkers,” said Frederick Schenk, chairman of the Fair Planning Committee, during a press conference and fair preview on May 17. “We have tea parties and hats. White rabbits and cats. A fabulous day and queens and croquet. We are mad about the fair.”

The 2016 San Diego County Fair opens Friday, June 3 and runs through Monday, July 4 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
