umte y Cty Roe, Bkr Cut ar Peiet Thrills, Squeals and Ferris Wheels highlights the theme of


the Baker County Fair this 2010 season. With the IPRA Rodeo on Oct. 1st and 2nd opening day of the Fair was great with Barrel Racing and Bull Riding. The squeals came from the agricultural barn and the many animals that filled it for the next 9 days. The Ferris Wheel took us to the many rides, Fair food, commercial exhibits and, of course, the great entertainment that we will enjoyed nightly. We really went all out for music this year including, but not limited to, Big Band style music to the 60 's to country and pop and gospel. Hope you had a chance to visit us for our 9 days of Thrills, Squeals and Ferris Wheels. If not, be sure to mark your calendar for next October. We’d love to have you stop by!

The Northwest Florida ran from October 26th -30th . The


Fair featured a new Midway, The James Gang, along with local entertainment, Emerson Farms, 4-H and Art. The 2010 Fair returned to its original location, out back, where it had been held for 30 years. Due to the oil spill and bad economy in Northwest Florida, we hoped to bring some “fun” back into the community like the Fairs in the past.

which runs from November 4 – 14, 2010. With this theme, the North Florida Fair is reconnecting with its roots. We all have fond memories of the Fair, but our fondest memories

are as a child. Encouraging parents and grandparents to rekindle those memories is the motive behind this year’s theme. Entertainment has been booked that is attractive to children but also appeals to the “inner child” of adults. Grant Kemmerer’s “Wild World of Animals,” http:// www.wildworldofanimals.org/, is a real crowd pleaser. His shows are entertaining and educational which is always a plus with parents. Grant features exotic animals in his show and has been featured on TV from Animal Planet to the Letterman Show. Belmont Magic Show, http:// www.wizardsfestivaloffun.com/, has also been booked. Al Belmont is bringing his showmobile trailer and his profes- sional act to entertain the children and adults alike with his sleight of hand magic tricks. The showmobile folds out into an attractive stage for the magic show. Of course, what would a Fair be like without a petting zoo and racing pigs, so Jay Phillips is bringing his Show-Me Swine Racers and the Show-Me Safari Petting Zoo. They have been at the North Florida Fair before and have always been a crowd favorite. When the bugle blows announcing an up- coming show, kids and adults alike run to the “racetrack” to watch the pigs. As the headliner attraction, Joe Bauer’s Circus Maximus, http://www.bauerentertainment.com/ home.htm, is scheduled to appear. The big top circus will provide thrilling entertainment daily to the visitors of the North Florida Fair. As always, the entertainment is free with paid admission to the Fair. Additionally, in light of the slow recovery of the economy, the North Florida Fair is holding the cost of admission down, making the Fair a real bargain in quality family entertainment. “One of the things I am trying to accomplish at the Fair is


re-branding of a sort. I want people to think of the Fair as a true entertainment value,” says North Florida Fair man- ager Mark Harvey. “By holding the line on prices and ac- tively promoting money saving options like the advanced sale tickets, customers are recognizing that the Fair is a good way to spend an evening or two and they walk away with a good feeling. Those customers will return next year.” All of the money saving specials as well as shows and


show t imes are l isted on the websi te www.northfloridafair.com. Come to the North Florida Fair and be a kid again.
