OC Fair Board Votes To Evict Swap Meet After 42-Year Run

COSTA MESA (CBS) — After a 42-year-run at the Orange County Fair Grounds, the weekend swap meet is on its way out.

The Orange County Fair Board voted Thursday to evict the swap meet from the property.

They say business is down, and according to The Daily Pilot, the board hasn’t been getting along with the company that operates the swap meet.

The market is losing its lease in 18 months, but the swap meet’s operator says he wants to stay and he’ll fight the fair board’s decision.

    none of the rich people shop there. so get rid of it. the oc continues to be the black eye of this great state.

    I drove by there a few times when the swap meet was on and all the people going there were Mexican. I think they all come from Santa Ana also known as Tijuana. That is why they want to close it down to keep the illegal aliens out of a nice city.l

      Your comment lets me know you are lying. I’m white and i’ve been there a few times and I see a BUNCh of white people there all of the time. Now if you go across he street to OCC then you will see mostly mexicans. Get your facts straight before you start trolling. You look like an complete m0ron right now. You fail at trolling 101…
