This year, the Central Florida Fair encompasses three weekends of rickety carnival rides, fried Oreos and swine showmanship. Try to keep your lunch down with the rest of the thrill-seekers on stomach-churning vertical drop rides, or mill around the craft exhibits and admire the perfectly hand-stitched pillow covers. Events throughout the fair include dancers, musicians, cooking demonstrations, bake sales, educational booths and children’s activities. But it wouldn’t be a true traditional fair experience without listening in on the rooster crowing contest, watching a group of farmers tow their cows around a pen like show poodles, or checking out the hottest trends of the poultry, rabbit and cavy fashion revue, which we can only assume includes guinea pigs sporting the latest looks from Calvin Klein.

4 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. Saturdays, 11 a.m. Sundays, through March 13 | Central Florida Fairgrounds, 4603 W. Colonial Drive | centralfloridafair.com | $10
