The whirling maelstrom of rabbits, food projects, art, kids, trips to the fairgrounds, sewing, mixed with just a pinch of pixie dust. Some sort of magic was at work to keep me sane and get all the stuff done and turned in on time. 434 more words
It’s all about the kids at the Tama County Fair. In addition to the wide array of 4-H livestock shows and exhibits are a fashion show, bucket of junk contest, BBQ-grill cook-off contest, and fair dance. 22 more words

Well hello y’all! I got off my rear and worked with Ranger today even though it was CRAZY windy. I wasn’t planning on working with him I was just going to ride Montana bareback but when I walked up to the gate he came rushing over when he saw his halter! 295 more words
One of the fair’s most popular attractions, the Ferris wheel, regularly brings the largest lines.
rt students from Schools from all around Pasco County have their art displayed around the fairgrounds in various buildings.
The fair has several rides provided by Wade Shows, a travelling carnival company.
One of the fair’s oldest shows is Paul and Carlota Robinson’s Racing Pigs, a 25 year veteran of many fairs and carnivals around Florida and the country.
The fair is also home to several art competitions. There are several categories, such as photography, painting, and sculpting.
There are several rows of carnival games and food trucks along the fairgrounds pathways, including basketball games, shooting games, and throwing darts. Winning results in a reward such as a stuffed animal, custom t-shirt, or even a goldfish.
