The annual Florida State Fair is a salute to the state's best in the agriculture and equestrian industry including an abundance of awesome shows, music, rides, food and shopping for 12 consecutive days.
It kicked off last Thursday, and from what I hear, the place was wall-to-wall with fair goers on the lookout for items like fried ice cream burgers and other delectable fair food delights!
