A Day or Two at the Florida State Fair

Every city, every state, every place on the planet has some kind of county or state fair. 
Okay.    Well, if you are looking for a small day trip then check out the
Florida State Fair while it’s in Tampa from February
10-21 and I’m sure you’ll be engaged in tons of strawberry shortcake and funnel cake. (No diets allowed
at the fairgrounds.)  I’m not quite sure how it compares with most fairs, but the fun to be had is just
magnificent!  I spent the day there myself (doing promo work for Chevrolet) and the food, food, food! 
Oh, but there are also enchanting amusement rides, live cooking shows and tons of great little trinkets
to pick-up.  In any case if you’re in Florida it’s definitely something to think about.
