Florida State Fairgrounds
Every February, the state celebrates its "bests" from needlework to hogs at the fair, on this 325-acre site not far from Busch Gardens. Other events are scheduled over the year but February's the highlight for agriculture and crafts fans. Named one of the top 100 events in the nation by the American Business Association, the Florida State Fair features plenty of rides and the grounds are landscaped and dotted with lakes. Activities vary through seasons - both big and small - from sporting event to exhibitions, trade shows, banquets, conferences and weddings.
I went to the liquidation event at the Victorville Fairgrounds in California. Before paying admission I was told the stuff was new and in boxes. Well, just after handing over $1500.00 cash for computers for my family I was told they are "factory refurbished with factory warranties". By this time it was too late. They brought out dented, scrathed old units say from a hospital or school and had to pick and choose from one messed up one to another messed up one. Got home and screen had blank rows and the computers cant burn disks like we were told. They are the slowest things I've ever seen. After we were told they have warranties find out they dont. They are all sold "AS IS". I am stuck with a bunch of junk!!!!
We drove from jacksonville during tropical storm Fay to attend a concert. We were so pleased that the Fairgrounds were in walking distance. The room was clean, the staff helped us find a lint roller and the pet policy is great. I was greatly impressed considering the less than favorable reviews online. I will definitely return especially if the band reschedules our show(which was cancelled). My only suggestion is to have ashtrays available for the smoking rooms.
