Thanks North Florida and South Georgia. Your support is overwhelming.
The North Florida Fair has just completed our most successful fair and many say our best fair. The attendance was over 109,000 people. That is another record attendance figure. There were new foods such as “redneck eggrolls” and the Krispy Kreme hamburger that were tasty and fun to try. The rocking chair lounge was a welcome addition to some tired parents and grandparents to rest while the kids were having fun. IFAS was present to teach children about gardening and plant growth. Goat Mountain was very popular with the animal lovers. Many went home with free items and prizes as a souvenir of the best fair ever. We are already working to make next year’s fair even more special. We are planning to bring a “Free Drop” attraction to the fair. For those not familiar with the Free Drop, think of a movie set where someone falls out of a third story window onto the street below. Fairgoers will be offered an opportunity to freefall from 30 feet in the air onto a large cushion, just like the Hollywood stunt actors. Other forms of entertainment are being considered as well. We will post those shows when we know what they are. We are already working to make the 2015 fair even better. Thanks again for your continued support.
