Your driving down the interstate, you see the bright lights of the ferris wheel shining and you hear the laughter of the people eating and spending time together. You can almost taste the French fries, donut burgers and fresh squeezed lemonade. You absolutely cannot wait to go and visit the Florida State Fair the next chance you get. The fair only takes up 12 days of the entire month of February, but there are enough rides, exhibits and enticing eats to take up the entire month. The fair is fit for family days, a day away from stress for the parents or even a girls night with your bestfriends. They have everything from food to fuzzy animals and I promise you will want to visit it any chance that you get. In 1904, the South Florida Fair Association was formed and plans for a new exhibition were proposed. The fair was founded as the South Florida Fair in downtown Tampa and renamed the Mid-Winter Festival a few years later. The name finally changed to the present Florida State Fair in 1915.
I would need to figure out why the named changed? Who originally thought of the idea of the fair? Also what has changed since the opening of the fair in 1904?
