The Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa is ordering backup equipment and will mostly operate on generators during the annual fair next month, when officials expect electricity shortages and rolling blackouts. The carnival operator, Ray Cammack Shows, will bring nine generators to the fair to power all the rides except two for children. The two kiddie rides will use electricity from Southern California Edison because they will be too far from the generators.
