Oz in the News 10.11.18

San Diego County Fair promises to be ‘Oz-some’ in 2019 The San Diego County Fair’s 2019 theme of “Oz-some” will encompass the iconic books and films surrounding L. Frank Baum’s classic “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” “The Fair’s theme is quite special to San Diegans, because Oz author L. Frank Baum is thought to have found inspiration for at least 3 of his 14 Oz books during his extended stays in Coronado,” Katie Mueller, deputy general manager of fair time operations, said. “Though most people know Oz only through the famous movie, the Fair has chosen to bring the books to life, including a few differences that will be a surprise to most. For instance, Dorothy’s famous slippers are silver, not ruby.” The fair will run from May 31, 2019, to July 4, 2019, and be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays in June. Fair officials say San Diegans will get to journey to Emerald City and enjoy education exhibits, wicked carnival rides, and more fair fun they’ve come to know and love.
