Miami-Dade County Fair Opens Today, Time For Fair Food
By Laine Doss,
Thu., Mar. 17 2011
The Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition opens today and runs through April 3.
The Fair is celebrating it's 60th birthday this year and over half a million people are expected to show up for this 18-day long party.
Attractions at the fair include a circus, live tigers, rides, freaky-looking carnies to scare the children and...fair food. Over 160 different fair foods that bring you right back to childhood will be served on sticks, paper and foil -- because no self-respecting adult who knows better should ever eat this stuff. But we do and we love it.
Fair food means fried food. If you can throw it in a vat of boiling oil, someone will serve it at the fair. Expect the usual fried Oreos, zeppoles, funnel cake and elephant ears with some new additions. Fried bacon, butter and even fried Pepsi is rumored to make an appearance this year. The Krispy Kreme donut burger, a 1/4 pound of beef served with cheese, lettuce and tomato on two Krispy Kreme glazed instead of a bun, is sure to be a hit with the "I dare you" crowd.
The Fair opens most weekdays at 3 p.m. and noon on weekends. Advance purchase fair admission is $10, but there are various discounts for military, teachers, and many local stores offer coupons. You can also print a discount coupon here. from: http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/shortorder/2011/03/the_miami-dade_fair_opens_toda.php
