October is full of fun times, like Oktoberfest events and haunted houses. Sadly, not all of them are good for bringing the kids along. If you want an excuse to get outside and really romp with your kids, you should plan to stop into the San Diego Kids Expo and Fair.

This event, hosted at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, turns the space into a wonderland of fun family activities. Whether you’re bringing a rambunctious toddler or a teenager more interested in video games, you’ll definitely find something for kids of all ages at the San Diego Kids Expo & Fair. Whether you’re looking for innovative toys, ideas for fun activities around town or a place to let the kids blow off steam, you’ll have all kinds of options at the Kids Expo & Fair.

Indoor and Outdoor Fun for the Whole Family

There’s an indoor Expo, featuring 150 local and national businesses that cater to children and their families. There will be all kinds of companies present, from soccer leagues and karate teachers to toys and art supply businesses. There will be a host of free, fun indoor activities for kids of all ages.

Outside, the Fair will be raging. You’ll need a wristband to attend the fair activities, which features 300 foot long zip lines, a Euro Bungee, a Human Hamster Ball and even a pedal car race track. There will be Laser Tag and lots of video gaming fun in the Gaming Trailer. There’s a Coconut Climb and an Inflatable Playland has plenty of places to jump, bounce, run and even roll in mini Xorbing Balls on an obstacle course.
