..of course it February and I’m talking about the Florida State  Fair, that has been stuffing us with fair filled frivolity annually for over 101 years. For everyone in Tampa Bay Area when February rolls around they know it’s time to go to the fair. I went this year for my annual carnival-like cravings of fried foods and fun rides.img_0311-1.jpg And of course there was no disappointment.    The Fair is a bit of Florida or specifically Tampa Bay history, being in the Tampa Bay Area for 101 years, and you can feel it’s deep-rooted traditions of Florida history when you go throughout the fair. Whether you go through the farm exhibits showing the agriculture and farming traditions of the state of Florida. Or you visit the antique Cracker Country section showcasing the traditions of the Florida Cracker (people who used the bull whips similar to Cowboys for livestock and to communicate for miles with just the “crack”of the whips).   They have an entire village showing the history of how to mill sugar cane and make antique chairs. As well as rope making and candle dipping, Even a hall of all the Florida governors in history. You can spend an entire day at the Fair and really still not see it all, between the food, rides,exhibits,and historical showcases.  The Florida State Fair is a great for families wanting to have fun and learn all in one convenient place. So make it out before it’s gone on February 14th. You won’t regret it!!!

 

Comment below with all your Fair-filled fun you’ve experienced at the Florida State Fair!
