The Orange County Fair intends to be quiet this year, at least from the outside.
An open house at the fairgrounds Wednesday evening showed off changes intended to keep as much noise as possible from leaking out into the surrounding neighborhoods while the festivities run from July 11 to Aug. 10.
At the Pacific Amphitheatre, the fair’s main concert stage, consultant Gary Hardesty told a group of a few dozen neighbors to yell into a row of panels that were constructed behind the top row of seating.
