On the edge of the Orange County Fair lives a floating town. Inside its canvas walls, babies are born and weddings take place. Here the scent of burning sugar from cotton candy wafts in from the fun zone and mingles with the smell of just-cleaned laundry, and the noise of the carnival and the grinding rush of the crowd becomes distant. The stretch of patchy grass, where the mobile homes and tents of the traveling carnival are stationed, is home to six families.

The empty parking lot at the Orange County Fairgrounds is misleading. Behind the emptiness, there is a buzz of activity. Trucks and carts drive past workers in hard hats assembling carnival rides. Painters, landscape artists and sculptors scramble to build banana trees, paint umbrella stands bright green and sculpt a Hawaiian island out of 1,000 tons of sand. Few stalls are set up by Tuesday afternoon, and the fair starts Friday.
