So the day my 3.5yr old daughter had been waiting for had finally arrived. This was THE day we were going to the FAIR ! Not just any fair but one of the biggest and best fairs in the nation. The Miami Dade County Youth Fair http://www.thefair.me/thefair. Held on the FIU campus every year for 3 full weeks, this is the fair not to be missed.
Our little girl pulled us on multiple rides, games and even a circus performance under the big tent. They have things for kids and adults alike. We spent the majority of our time in the KiddieLand area. Everything is kid sized. Swings, mini roller coasters and teacup rides were just a few of the thrilling rides my girl enjoyed. After a cherry sno cone break we went to the circus tent for a great show. She went fishing and played a water gun balloon carnival game. Won a pig and a lady bug ! We all split a ginormous turkey leg for lunch.
We wandered through their exhibition halls where they had a belly dancing show and all sorts of things offered for purchase. Ava really really loved the animal halls. Rabbits and chickens were everywhere. The petting zoo was just the icing on the cake. One could forget we were in the biggest urban area in Florida while walking amongst camels and goats. Just spending the day watching my little girl have the time of her life was a gift I will not soon forget.. THE FAIR ! GET THERE !
