100 years of the South Florida Fair

The South Florida Fair!!! If you are a local then you know that this is always an exciting event for South Florida and the residents. This year however, is more exciting than all the others because it is the 100th anniversary of the fair.

The fair is the largest event to take place in South Florida. It has everything you would want in a fair and more. The animals, pig races, great fair food, rides, games, entertainment, and more.

I went to the fair this past Saturday and enjoyed every second of it. The weather was perfect for walking around outside. I do not ride the rides, but I do like to walk around and check out all the vendors and shows that are present every year. I went to the Mooternity to check out the pregnant cows. Two cows were born an hour or so before I had arrived.

The food at the fair is always a topic that is brought up when talking about the fair. The food is very good. The interesting part about it is all the fried food you can buy. Fried oreos, fried sticks of butter, fried snickers, and new this year is fried kool-aid. It is not good for you but the word on the street is that it tastes very good. On Saturday, I tried the fried kool-aid and I will admit that it is surprisingly very good.

This is what the kool-aid looks like after it is fried.

Another famous food item that is present at the fair every year is the Krispy Kreme Burger. I have not tried it nor do I plan on trying it. I do not know anyone that has tried it so if you have tried it or know anyone that has please let me know how it is. I’m too scared to try it since 1 krispy kreme doughnut is sweet enough as it is.

The entertainment is always something to check out. My favorite act is the hypnotist. Whether you believe in it or not I recommend stopping by and checking out one of the shows for a guaranteed laugh. I did not get a chance to see the hypnotist this year. I do believe it is a different hypnotist this year so if you stop by and check him out please let me know how he is.

They always have some kind of show that features an animal. This year it is sea lions. Previous years it has been alligators.

Stop by the fair and help South Florida celebrate the 100th anniversary of the event. It is an event for all ages. Many memories will be shared while attending.

If you went to the fair this year what was your favorite part about it?

Downtown at the Gardens

Palm Beach Gardens has really evolved into a beautiful city over the past few years. I remember when PGA Blvd had vacant fields everywhere. There used to be no overpass going over A1A, making PGA and A1A an intersection.

This all changed when they started to build Legacy Place and Downtown at the Gardens.

Downtown at the Gardens is an excellent outdoor shopping center where the options are endless. There is something for everyone at Downtown. There is room for families, a single shopper, and of course room for two at any of the restaurants. At Downtown you have everything from Dining to Shops.

Some of the dining that is at Downtown is
YardHouse
Cheesecake Factory
Cabo Flats
Grimaldi’s

Some of the shops at Downtown are
sur la table
Urban Outfitters
iZod
Whole Pet Essentials

There is a lot of entertainment for the entire family as well. The kids can go to A Latte Fun and play while the parents enjoy a cup of coffee. The kids can also ride the carousel and the new train that takes the family for a ride around the downtown boulevard and courtyard.

You can’t forget about Cobb Theatres where everyone goes to catch a flick every now and then.

Downtown constantly has various events that are for families, the furry friends, adults, and more.
