From the joy that comes from hearing children laugh with delight, to the aroma of fried foods filling the air, to the spectacle of contestants gorging themselves with spaghetti — the 75th annual Pasco County Fair had myriad opportunities for people to have a good time.
A giant talking robot strolled through the fairgrounds cracking jokes.
Rides offered speed, thrills and dazzling lights.
Gospel singers and karaoke performers entertained the crowds.
And, of course, there were chances to compete in home craft categories, and at livestock shows.
For some, the trip to the fair, at 36722 State Road 52, in Dade City, was a pleasant way to spend time with family and catch up with old friends.
The theme of this year’s fair, from Feb. 21 to Feb. 27, was “Memories Made New.”
There were plenty of chances to do that — to make new memories, that is.
