One week left to attend the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair and Exposition (includes video story)

There is just one week left of the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair and Exposition. 

The fair, which officially opened on November 18, includes food, rides, and a new enthusiasm that just maybe, the COVID-19 outbreak is over. 

Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Exposition President & CEO Eddie Cora ensured the event is following the standard COVID-19 safety guidelines for attendees to have the opportunity to enjoy and create fun memories. 

“After two-and-a-half years, we decided to bring the fair back,” said Cora. “Instead of doing it in March, we decided to do it in November. We wanted to get on the backside of the vaccines and the community has done a great job on making sure that we stay safe.”

This annual event normally takes place during March and was planned to reopen in 2020. But due to the rise of COVID-19 cases, the fair was forced to close. 

Now attendees can enjoy electrifying attractions such as the Mega Drop, the Crazy Mouse and the Ring of Fire, as well as an array of kid-friendly rides. The Youth Fair also provides a variety of carnival-style treats, including Mama Jane’s famous lemon poppyseed funnel cake, deep-fried Oreos, hot dogs, cotton candy and more. There is also a petting zoo, live music and exhibits. 

Tickets are on sale now and can be bought online or at the gate. Discounts are available during weekdays for students, seniors citizens, children and more.
