With the Delta Variant pushing COVID-19 numbers back up, outdoor events are looking more and more appealing to Angelenos as August gets underway. The 2021 Summer Fair of Los Angeles at Santa Anita Park fits the bill with live music, yummy food options, rides and attractions, and other novel entertainment like a haunted mansion, carnival games, a kid zone, train ride, stunt show and animal acts. Running now thru Aug. 22 (Thursdays to Sundays) expect the familiar artery-clogging fried delights and fair staples in music: tribute groups, local bands and international folkloric outfits. 285 W Huntington Dr, Arcadia. www.statefairent.com.
