Best Photo Spots At The State Fair


Looking for a way to spice up your social media feed or just want a great family photo? Well look no further! The Florida State Fair not only serves as a fun and thrilling event, but also as one of the most Instagram worthy photo spots during it's 11 day run! There are many different locations throughout the Fair itself that are great for taking cute and artsy photos and we are here to tell you about a few of our favorites.

When you visit the fair, head on over to the midway to take some fun photos posing in front of the many game booths along the strip! While you’re at it, make sure to get some nice action shots of you playing some of the games and competing with your friends and family for a prize! You also have the opportunity to take some cute and whimsical photos on the carousel, during the day or at night when the lights are on for an illuminating effect! Or stand in the middle of the midway, trying not to block traffic as best you can, and get a fun and colorful background to your photo with you as the focus!

If you are looking to take some cute photos up in the sky, the Ferris Wheel and sky ride are your best bet! With a blue sky in the background and a bright smile on your face, these photos are guaranteed to be fair-tastic! I mean, who doesn’t love a classic Ferris Wheel pic? Another great way to use the Ferris Wheel in your photos is to take a picture standing directly in front of it with the camera at an angle, or across the pond with the Wheel in the distance.

A must take photo at the fair is one of you posing with some delicious fair food! Stop and grab some grub from one of the multiple vendors around the fair and take some great pics sitting and eating countless tasty treats. Pose with classic fair foods like funnel cakes, corn dogs, and turkey legs, as well as some new dishes like gelato nachos, the pig rig sandwich, the candy pop sundae, and more that make for a great photo op!

Animal friends always make for adorable photo companions! Stop by the livestock barns on the fairgrounds to get a charming pic with goats, pigs, sheep, and more. If you are looking for some candid photo opportunities, watching performances and shows offered at the fair is the right way to go! Capture you and your friends dancing, smiling, singing, and clapping for a very cheery ready to post photo!

In the evening, make sure you get a gorgeous sunset picture for an amazing social media post or just to have as a great memory of your time at the fair! It is surely a sight to see when fair rides, vendors, and game booths brighten up the night sky with their lights! Take as many photos under the neon lights anywhere throughout the fairgrounds and it is sure to be a trendy and fun photo.
