South Florida Fair

SOUTH FLORIDA FAIR is part of WINTERFEST SANCTIONED EVENTS & CELEBRATION EVENTS*:

South Florida Fair – From children to adults, many of us have used our imagination to dream of possessing extraordinary or superhuman powers. That’s the stuff of superheroes and honoring them is what we have chosen as our 2019 Fair theme. From everyday heroes to the superheroes of the silver screen, guests can expect to see appearances by their favorite Marvel and DC Comics Heroes while celebrating local superheroes who will be recognized for their special powers in the “Not all Heroes Wear Capes” parades. Heroes of Education, Heroes of Freedom, Heroes in Medicine, Heroes Behind the Badge and many more will be honored at the South Florida Fair, January 18 – February 3 in West Palm Beach.
