Rodeo, Battle of the Bands at Hillsborough County Fair Today (Oct. 19)

Day 3 at the Hillsborough County Fair kicks off at noon Oct 19 at the Hillsborough County Fairgrounds, just east of Brandon off State Road 60 on Sydney Washer Road in Dover.


Hillsborough County students have a day off from school today, Oct. 19, which is reason enough for the 2012 Hillsborough County Fair to offer student-ride specials at the Hillsborough County Fairgrounds in Dover.

Also on tap today, among the regularly featured events, is a Battle of the Bands competition and a rodeo show, for which a rodeo ticket is required. The Desert Moon band is set to perform.

General Admission to the fair costs $7 for adults and $5 for students, ages 6 through high school. Children ages 5 and under are admitted for free. There is no charge for parking.

Gates open at noon and close at 11 p.m.

The five-day fair opened Oct. 17, at 5 p.m., and is scheduled to close Oct. 21, at 9 p.m. Each day features "continuous shows in the entertainment tent with Donny and Sandy and a talent showcase of variety acts."

Also at the fair: exhibits, shows, vendors and a midway.
