The sights: flashing lights, seas of people, carnival rides rising up into the air.

The sounds: screams of delight from the thrilling rides, bells and whistles, the sizzle of a grill, the popping of oversized vats of kettle corn.

The smells: fried fair-food galore, roasting meats, sweet scents of indulgent desserts.

There's nothing quite like the experience of the San Diego County Fair, and it's the last opportunity to "Race to the Fair" before it closes. The final day of the fair is Monday, July 4.

The fair culminates on Independence Day with a performance by REO Speedwagon on the Heineken Grandstand Stage, as well as the Navy Band Southwest and a fireworks show.
