FL State Fair 2009TAMPA, FL. - December 9, 2008.  Tampa has played host to professional football's big game before.  But this year, football's super event will be followed by a perennial fan favorite that's sure to be exciting  when it kicks off.  And it's always in Tampa, and always in February.

It's the 105th Florida State Fair.  Opening day is Thursday, February 5 and the fun and games run through Monday, February 16, 2009.  And this year, in keeping with the feeding frenzy that a super football game date brings to the Tampa Bay area, the theme of the 2009 Florida State Fair is Touchdown, Tampa Bay.

"Football, unlike any other sport, is arguably an American way of life, especially here in Florida, a state responsible for sending phenomenal talent to playing on Saturday and Sunday.  We thought the theme would be a perfect backdrop for the Fair," said Fair marketing director Vince Caruso. "Plus, I don't know of any annual event with more fun for the whole family for about the cost of a hot dog and a drink at any pro football game," added Caruso.
