VC FAIR, SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!

TAKING A LITTLE BREAK FROM A LONG TIME TRADITION


Usually August is time for OBT to prepare and participate in the Ventura County Fair.  But this year, we will be taking a break.   The main reason for this is because our trusty dependable trailer is not able to meet all the new health department requirements and we did not have enough time to prepare an alternative. The fair has been a long time OBT tradition going back to the 60’s and the trailer was bought in the mid 70’s.  I know there will be many disappointed fair goers who will miss their udon and teriyaki.  We sincerely apologize and we look forward to being back at the fair in 2015.


Stay tuned for updates on next year’s Fair. And let’s take a little break and remember all the memories our good ol’ trailer has given us.
