The Pasco County Fair has always prided itself on its focus on family fun, in a safe environment, and this year’s fair fulfilled that mission.
It featured a parade through downtown Dade City, with the theme of “Thrills, Squeals and Ferris Wheels.”
There were the usual fair favorites, too: Food, music, rides, competitions and shows.
Hungry fair-goers could choose tasty offerings such as gyros, French fries, corn dogs, roasted corn and, of course, cotton candy, candy apples, elephant ears, funnel cakes, cinnamon roll, and much, much more.
There were gospel and bluegrass concerts, roving entertainers, racing pigs and other shows.
Art was on display, and kids showed off their prize heifers, bulls, rabbits and other animals.
There were lots of rides on the Midway, too.
The fair, put on by the Pasco County Fair Association, has played an important role in community life in Dade City for decades, and has attracted people from far and wide to enjoy its offerings.
It carried on that tradition, again, in 2019.
