Besides Bello’s shows, there is much to see and do at this year’s Florida State Fair. Of course there are the rides on the Midway for kids and adults alike. You can take the “Skyride” to go back and forth across the fairgrounds. There is the New York funhouse and several ferris wheels if you don’t mind heights & want to get a great view of the entire fair and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino across the street. There are the Livestock shows, horses, llamas and zebras. Don’t forget the Hollywood Pig Races and the swine show! There is horticulture, arts & crafts, photography and all kinds of demonstrations and competitions. Check out “Sea Lion Splash”, a cute show down the Midway, I got to meet one of the star seals. She takes selfies!
The Grove stage offers a variety of music genres for all ages. For the foodies, there is so much variety I don’t know where to start. How about a donut burger or a steak sundae? Very popular this year is the dill pickle white pizza, yes dill pickle! Fried Oreos, giant corn dogs, pineapple ice cream, Flaming Cheeto Lava Cake, turkey legs, and just about every kind of combination of food imaginable is at the fair! You might want to wait a bit after eating to get on the ferris wheel! Have fun! The Florida State Fair is running through Sunday, May 2nd. Ticket and event info are on the website.
