WAPA at the Los Angeles County Fair

September 13 - 29, 2002

The Los Angeles County Fair is the largest county fair in the country and this is the second year in recent history that the Western Antique Power Associates has participated.  It is in operation at least 12 hours a day for a run of 17 days.  The pictures below show just a portion of what we had on display.
