Orange County Fair directors selected "Join the Rush!" as the theme for the 1999 summer fair and set prices and dates at their monthly meeting Thursday.
The slogan refers not only to the short time the fair is in Costa Mesa--17 days from July 9-25--but also to the kick of adrenaline patrons experience on rides and attractions.
The fair will honor California history to coincide with the state's sesquicentennial, making a Gold Rush connection. Also, this is the fair's 50th year in Costa Mesa.
Directors agreed to leave admission prices unchanged from 1998. General admission will remain at $6, seniors $5 and children 6 to 12, $2.
