Fair features John F. Kennedy exhibit

Posted: Updated:
DEL MAR (CBS 8) - In addition to the corn dogs and Ferris wheel, this year the San Diego County Fair features a special exhibit on President Kennedy.

The JFK Experience marks the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination. It features the vehicle that drove JFK and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy to the plane that took them to Dallas.

There is also a collection of gowns worn by first ladies, a recreation of the Oval Office as it looked in the 1960s and some personal items from the Kennedy family.

"We also have one of Miss Jacqueline's swimsuits, some of her shoes. We have presidential ties, and a few different artifacts that belonged to the Kennedys through the years," event manager Shay Hayes said.

The exhibit is open every day of the fair. Admission to the exhibit is $5 on top of admission, with kids 12 and under free.
