It’s January and families in Palm Beach are excited. The South Florida Fair is for back (January 18, 2019 – February 3, 2019).The fair is where kids have a blast and for adults to turn back into kids for a few hours. There are a few things that make this fair the best attraction thepalmbeaches.com gives the details:
Rides, Rides Rides – Last year there was the Midway Sky Eye, a 155-foot-high portable observation wheel (North America’s largest!) with 36 gondolas for amazing views and romantic cuddles. Little ones can enjoy rides on Bulgy the Whale, Kiddie Bumper Boats, (tiny) Monster Trucks and dozens more while the teenagers get their thrills on the MegaDrop, Alpine Bobs, Zombie Apocalypse and dozens more spinning, whirling rides.
Fantastic Fair Food – Have a rumbling stomach? sink your teeth into the sweetness of a doughnut and the salty goodness of a burger in one bite with a Porky’s Doughnut Burger. Or why not cross breakfast and lunch into one tasty treat with Bianco’s Frosted Flakes Chicken on a Stick?
Parades, Cover Bands and Racing Pigs – Daily parades, including the “New Orleans on Ice” Ice Parades Show, transport visitors to Mardi Gras and dazzle them with ice-skating moves. On Saturday, January 27, the best rock tribute bands competed, including Crush N’ Roses (a Guns N’ Roses tribute band), Smokin’ (for fans of Boston) and ZZ’s Best (an homage to ZZ Top).
More Events at the South Florida Fairgrounds – Florida’s rich history comes to life at Yesteryear Village within the South Florida Fairgrounds year ‘round. Whether you’re visiting during the South Florida Fair or not, spend a few hours exploring life as it was before 1940 as told by live period actors in original and replicated buildings including an old schoolhouse, a farm, a blacksmith shop, and general store and period homes.
