The Los Angeles County Fair has been held at the Los Angeles Fairgrounds (today known as the Fairplex) since 1922. During the 1930s, the Works Progress Administration constructed several buildings at the site and the Fairgrounds became the first venue in Southern California to allow bets on horse racing. The Fairgrounds were used in various capacities by the U.S. army during WWII and became the site of a Japanese-American internment camp. In 1966, then Republican gubernatorial candidate Ronald Regan visited the Fairgrounds.
