Putnam County Fair and Expo

The 60th Annual Putnam County Fair and Expo kicks off this weekend in East Palatka, Florida, from March 19th through the 27th!

There is a great midway full of rides, games and fattening foods just waiting for you to enjoy. Since Fernandina Beach outlawed carnivals many years ago because of a tragic shooting, we Islanders are used to going out of town to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a carnival.

Some of the highlights of this nine day event include a bear show and exhibit, puppet shows, Miss Putnam County Beauty Pageant, agriculture and horticulture shows and the expected showing of heifers, steers and swines.

Tony Stewart’s race car will even be on display, but this is for one day only so be sure to look up details of the event on their website at www.putnamfairandexpo.com.
