The Manatee County Fair

Zach Pelker, Staff Reporter

The Manatee Country Fair, a local tradition that has been around for 106 years is back once again. It started on Jan. 13, going until Jan 23, this Fair offers an array of activities. This ranges from roller coasters, to fried food if you are working up an appetite. Tickets go for $10 for 13 and up, children are $6, and 5 and under are free! Parking is an additional $10. There’s a chill in the air and it’s the right time of year. So grab your friends and head down to the fair! This tradition has been kept alive for this long, and the Fair continues to improve every year.
