Countywide : 1995 County Fair to Salute Horticulture
The 1995 Orange County Fair will run July 7-23 and will include a salute to the horticulture industry, officials said this week. That’s the science of growing flowers, fruits, vegetables and shrubs.
The 103rd annual fair also will include exhibits and events involving goats. The animals played a role in the formation of Costa Mesa, which was known in the late 19th Century as Goat Hill.
Displays of flowers and plants also are planned for next year’s event, which will include the usual carnival rides, games and livestock competitions.
The 1996 fair is tentatively set for July 11-28. The 1997 event is scheduled for July 10-27.
The fair’s board of directors also has selected Buck Johns as its president.
Johns, a 52-year-old Newport Beach resident, will serve in the job for one year. He is owner of Inland Group Inc., a development organization based in Newport Beach.
John Crean, 69, of Newport Beach was named vice president. He is chairman of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc.
Becky Bailey-Findley, 40, of Anaheim Hills was named secretary-treasurer. She is general manager of the Orange County Fair.
