Presented by Ramona Chamber of Commerce, the fair will be on the Ramona Outdoor Community Center grounds at 421 Aqua Lane from July 26 through 29. Admission to the fair is free, but parking is $5 per vehicle, with proceeds going to the community groups that provide parking attendants and other parking volunteers.
