It's Fair Time

This year the Broward County Fair has a sports theme.

The 31st Annual Broward County Fair is here, but keep in mind that this year the location has changed to the Ft. Lauderdale Baseball Stadium.

Located on Commercial Boulevard, two miles west of I-95, the new home of the fair was visited by ride inspectors who were testing the safety of midway rides before opening Thursday evening.. Running November 16th through the 26th, this year's theme is "Major League Fun".

I'm guessing that the Fair is being held where the Orioles hold spring training.

If you decide to go to the fair, and who doesn't love a fair, you need to get there early in order to get the "free" gift.

the first 500 people who enter the fair each day will receive a free sports gift, from their favorite sports teams, such as the Miami Heat, Florida Panthers, Miami Dolphins and The Florida Marlins.

Now, I have no idea whether the first 500 people through the gate who request a Marlins sports gift get one or whether on certain nights you receive a certain team or if they are only giving out 500 a night and you get to select your favorite team.

But if you want to know more, here is the Fair's website: The Broward County Fair.  If you do get one, please let us know what was in it.
