If you are a fan of carnival rides, walking the lighted midway at night along with tons of food and games, then we have the place for you!

The Florida State Fair opens this weekend (February 6th. through the 17th.). This year’s state fair is bigger and better than ever with new attractions and events like the Fair Foodie Crawl, The Deep Fried Dash. And the new “Promo Days” offers a different discount deal almost every day!

My wife and I LOVE fairs! We’ve been to many, in many states. And the Florida State Fair in Tampa is a big one. There is nothing we love to do more than walk the midway, people watch and eat as much of the delicious fair food concoctions as we can stuff in our stomachs. So, the Foodie Crawl and the Deep Fried Dash are right up our alley.

Christine always has a corn dog and an ear of buttery corn, while I get my obligatory turkey leg and then seek out the most unusual desert selection I can find. Deep fried chocolate bacon is a favorite that comes to mind.

So, if you are a “fair lover” like us, ABC Action News  says you can get an jump on things this year by picking up a ticket for the 2020 Florida State Fair at more than 200 participating Publix stores.

Tickets are still on sale at discounted prices through February 5th so you may want to hurry. The Florida State Fair is the first state fair of the year and runs from February 6-17.

For more information about fair schedules, exhibits, entertainment and this year’s talent, you can visit the VERY informative Florida State Fair website, HERE.

To remind you of the fun you’ll miss if you miss the Fair… take a look at these “Fair” photos below…
