Be There...The Fair!

Yup, it's that time of year again. Schools are coming up on Spring Break here in South Florida which means only one thing... the Miami Dade County Fair is in full swing. Now exactly 7 years ago, when Lenin and I had just started dating, we tried to go to the fair. Traffic was so horrible that we ended up calling it a night once we had finally hit the intersection of Coral Way and SW 107 Avenue. Last weekend, we decided to give it another shot. We are both HUGE fans of fair-type food. I'm not sure how these people make the food so delicious, but I'm convinced no restaurant in the world could replicate the kind of food found at the fair and make it taste as good. Anything you can imagine can be found at the fair, fried and on a stick!

Lucky for us, the fair gods were smiling down on us since we made it to the fair with hardly any traffic. We did only a handful of rides, but we went there with one eat! After the turkey legs, italian sausages, pinchos, arepas, corn on the cob, and cinnamon roll, we were both walking around with a waddle. My inner fatso was in a state of complete bliss. I felt like any food craving that I had experienced over the past year had been completely satisfied. I wish I would have taken more pictures while we were there, but with all the food I just wanted to find a bed to sleep by the end of it all. I seriously think we consumed at least 10,000 calories!

The fair is located at Tamiami Park (by FIU) and is in town until April 12th.
