Hillsborough County Fair opens today

- It's that time of year again: The Hillsborough County Fair kicks off today.

“The county fair has always been about the kids and the youth, really. That’s the way it was developed,” Chris Holcomb explained on Good Day Tampa Bay, flanked by some of the stars of the fair. “It’s about the kids and the livestock.”

In addition to the livestock fairs and rodeos, this year’s fair has a pumpkin patch and arts and crafts area.

The fair opens today at 5 p.m. and runs through this Sunday, and then next Thursday through the 29th. The fairgrounds are at 215 Sydney Washer Road in Dover.

Today is Dollar Day-- a dollar to get in and a dollar for the rides.
