Good Times to Be Had at the Florida State Fair!

Have you been to the Florida State Fair? I was fortunate enough over the weekend to spend an entire day there thanks to Cox Radio and Magic 94.9. Although I did score free tickets and some other sweet freebies, all opinions below are my own!


I love the Florida State Fair. In recent years, I haven’t been able to go as frequently as I like, but when I do get to go, it’s ALWAYS a good time.

One of my favorite things about the Fair is the wide variety of entertainment. We watched a little bit of the Florida Cheer competition, we wandered around the art exhibits, and of course…we rode the rides!

My favorite rides were the ferris wheel and the sky ride. Not only were they a fabulous way to rest my tootsies from a whole lotta walking, they gave great bird’s eye views of the grounds. I prefer going on these types of rides at night because there is nothing prettier to me than all those lights shining bright at the fair!
