This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, The Hula Girls return to opening weekend at the OC Fair! We will be in the Baja Blues Bar from 8pm-11pm! This image is from 1963 and unfortunately, there will not be the custom car show or quarter horse auction. But come and watch some music, pet a goat, ride the Tilt-A-Whirl...! Who doesn't love the Fair??
And by the way, tiki isn't new to the OC Fair! Back in the late '50s and early '60s, Eli Hedley, (grandfather to Bamboo Ben and carver of the giant Moai in front the Stardust's Aku Aku restaurant) used to have a booth at the Fair! In fact, that's where I got these small Moai from. Well, let me clarify, I didn't buy them back then at the Fair, I got them at an estate sale where the former owners got them from Eli, at the Fair, back then... Supposedly in '59 though. And sorry for the distraction in the background of the picture. This was an outtake from a pinup shoot at my house.
Here's Eli, in his booth at the Fair in 1963. He's the fella in the white hat under one of the tiki banner things... Pretty cool, right?!
Anyway, hope to see you this weekend at the OC Fair!
