GREATER GULF COAST STATE FAIR OPENS

From left, Preston Mason, 5, Christian Mason, 10, and Ahmani Graham,11, take a ride on Free Fall during the opening day of the Greater Gulf State Fair.
When the Greater Gulf State Fair opened at 4 o’clock Friday afternoon, Tiffany Watson, 24, was one of the first in the gate. With her younger cousins Cortez Watson, 12, and Amaya Gonzalez, 11, Watson strolled the midway, past the corn dog stands and whirling rides. "We love the fair," she said.
Watson and her family had purchased Midnight Madness tickets — $20 in advance, $25 at the gate — allowing them unlimited rides until the fair shut down at 2 a.m.
Watson said they planned to enjoy themselves on the midway the entire ten hours.
Under blue skies and a rising full moon, Watson and thousands of others enjoyed opening day at the fair. The temperature was balmy, and fairgoers in shirtsleeves sat on benches eating Polish sausages, jambalaya, candy apples and funnel cakes as evening descended. READ MORE AT:
