LA County Fair- Flowers and Gardens pavilion

As one of my favorite buildings at the Fairplex in Pomona, The Flowers and Gardens Pavilion houses such beautiful exhibits. The 2005 Fair's display focused on "Treasures of Polynesia", which blew me away. A lot of time and energy went into this exhibit and it shows. The 60's architecture of the building meshed so well with the Tiki theme of the gardens, creating a tropical paradise for anyone who experienced this magical place.

I don't know who is supposed to sit on that stool, but maybe I should have moved it to get a better picture. These statues guarded the back of the pavilion.

Another cool set of statues here at the pavilion. It must have been 90 degrees outside that day, but the air conditioned pavilion featured an oasis for the mind as well as the body. The 2006 theme for the pavilion is "The Road to Morocco". If I make it up to the fair this year, I will be sure to check it out, but I do not know how it could be any better than this.
