Hey everyone.  Travis back with more great Tampa Bay area events.  You can discover the past at Cracker Country at the Florida State Fairgrounds this weekend, with the Spring Community Social from 10 am - 4 pm on Saturday. 

Here's the scoop:  Come celebrate the change in the seasons at our 1890s gathering filled with history and fun.  Kids can test their skills, and maybe win a ribbon, in 19th century contests like sack racing, hoop rolling and ring tossing. 

Win prizes in our period guessing games.  Explore our special collection of antique quilts and try your hand at stitching.  Lend your muscle to household and farm chores, including making 100 feet of rope.  All while wandering through our original rural homes & structures.

This Florida history can be relived for an exceptional value.   Adult admission tickets are $ 6.00 each; students six to twelve years old and senior citizens tickets are $ 5.00 each.  Children five and under are admitted free. 

Parking is free for this event when visitors enter the Fairgrounds via the Orient Road entrance.
