1 more thing to add.......
If they are closed, I can bet all the cuban mooches are HOT & I mean HOT !! Why do I say this ? Well cuz every year on opening day the admission is 50 cents or some kind of special. Other than that the admission is like $8.00 or so just to get in the gate.

Just cannot figure out the right minds of thinking. Yes, we opened, however we are rained out. The only thing we open for today is to allow all the extra workers to get in and apply for jobs. Thats it. However, fair fans, we officially open the Dade County Youth Fair, tomorrow.

Yup they sure do !

Btw - Kiddie land is about the size of a regular lot (on most shows, but not all) all by it self.

The 3 times I’ve been it was right around 100 rides (95 to 100) with very few doubles and lots of BIG stuff. Last time I was there is when the SpaceWheels were there…
The Florida State fair (been there 3 times as well) may have, or used to have, a few more rides, but nothing to compare to the size of the stuff in Dade and had lots of doubles.
Can’t imagine having more there then what I saw….

Nope, never had a need to. I just got a kick out of the way you posted the comment.

a saw a recent pic of the fair when i clicked on the link. conklin's doppel looping coaster is there. there is a zamperla power surge there and a chance giant wheel (probly farrow's) and on the left side of the photo is the back wall for the space roller. there is also a wisdom tornado there. i wonder what other rides are there. i guess this fair is a conklin/farrow spot since they are part of north american midways. allways nice to see the space roller there.
