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.
