South Florida Fair Tickets On Sale Nov. 16

Those looking to save money on the 2014 South Florida Fair’s admission and midway rides can save up to 30 percent when buying tickets in advance.

Publix stores throughout Palm Beach County will begin selling advance discount tickets to the fair on Nov. 16. Guests also will get an additional bonus. When they use their advance discount admission ticket on the fair’s opening day, they will receive one free admission ticket to return another day.

The 102nd annual South Florida Fair’s theme is “New York City: Be a Part of It!” It will be held Jan. 17 through Feb. 2, 2014. Fair visitors will be welcomed to the sights and sounds of Manhattan’s Times Square as they enter the main gates. Fair goers will see a number of Big Apple attractions in the fair’s 80,000-square-foot featured exposition hall, including the building of a Statue of Liberty sculpture using more than 200 tons of sand and an impressive replica of the Empire State Building constructed out of food cans. For Broadway show fans, a first-class ice skating show will be held three times daily as the professional skaters perform to the music of Broadway’s biggest hits.

“The timing is perfect for those looking for stocking stuffers,” Fair President & CEO Rick Vymlatil said. “Fair tickets make a nice holiday gift for the entire family, friends or associates and we have different packages for every budget.”

An advance purchase saves up to 30 percent off gate prices, which go into effect Jan. 16. The cost of advance adult admission, 12 and older, is $10 ($15 at the gate). An advance child’s admission is $5 ($8 at the gate). Children age 5 and younger are free. For details on this and other discounts, visit
