FT. PIERCE, Fla. (FNN) – The St. Lucie County Fair kicked off on Friday February 25. People both young and old wait for the fair all year and Florida National News was no exception.
There is something for everyone: shopping, art, music, dancing, games, rides, animals, contests and, of course, food. Whether it be deep fried watermelon, kettle corn or just massive portions of the most decadent delicious bites, people use the fair as an excuse to go off their diets.
I had the pleasure of visiting the fair on Saturday. I think my favorite part was the pig racing. I saw musical acts, a mustache competition, Lady Houdini and much much more. I even met a group called Soldier Solutions. They provide rescue dogs that were trained to be service dogs for veterans with PTSD or disabilities. They sell products and raise money to help the cause. For more information, please check out soldiersolutionsllc.com
Lastly, I had to swing by the rides. Not for the faint of heart, some of these adrenaline packed rides were not what I remember as a kid! Just watching them From the sidelines makes you feel like you’ve been caught in a tornado; Zipping up and down, flipping all over. A suggestion from a fellow fair goer was ‘eat after the rides. Before isn’t the greatest idea’.
The fair runs for 10 days, and times vary depending on weekdays or weekends. People of all ages are invited to come out and experience a fun-filled day that will make you want to come back for more.
