The Point: Join RCTC and OCTA for the OC Fair-Corona Metrolink Day, Saturday, August 3 at 8:30 a.m.

Cute llamas, midway games, the Galaxy Coaster, Crunchy Hot Cheetos caramel apples, and tribute bands…yee-haw, it’s time for the annual OC Fair!

The Riverside County Transportation Commission, Metrolink, Orange County Transportation Authority and the OC Fair are sending fair-goers off in style at the Corona-North Main Station this Saturday at 8:30 a.m., an hour before the train heads to Orange County.

The first 100 guests to line up will receive a free roundtrip Metrolink ride to the Santa Ana Station/OC Fair Express and free admission to the OC Fair. But wait, there’s more! The lucky 100 also will get coupons for free carnival rides and lunch. Snacks, music, and other goodies also will be at the Corona-North Main Station to get the party started.

Metrolink’s Inland Empire/Orange County Line departs at 9:39 a.m. to Santa Ana. Riders will transfer free to the OC Fair Express Bus right to the gate. See trip details below.
