Bay Times, will be held Saturday Oct. 1st, 2016 at All People’s Life Center.
Representatives from the Hillsborough County Commissioners will open the F.AI.R. with a welcome and proclamation. They will be joined by more than 200 community partners and exhibitors who will help enrich, educate and empower the over 1800 expected participants. The general public is cordially invited to celebrate inclusive diversity with us.
The F.A.I.R. is a FREE family friendly community event. We want to help all people fully participate in as many activities as they can at the F.A.I.R. and in their community. People of all ages and abilities can visit exhibits with games and giveaways, while having fun learning about programs, products and services useful to them. Food will be available for purchase from a diverse variety of food trucks.
Our celebration of “Unity in Diversity” will include many demonstrations, exhibitors, and showcase a variety of ethnic and cultural performances. We will feature the SACA Golden Dragon Dancers, the Jones Kids, the Hindu dancers, Sign of Da Times, the Filipino dancers, Pyramid Players and the VA Together As One Drummers. Also returning are many of our former contributors to the F.A.I.R.
New this year is “Safety Street” a special area highlighting what’s available to help keep you and your family safe with games and giveaways to maintain the fun atmosphere.
The F.A.I.R. has something for everyone: There will be singing, dancing and music throughout the day, you can visit Santa, see and touch a fire truck, visit Enterprise Village-a special area for micro-enterprise vendors, donate blood, register to vote, get a massage, all while you interact with royalty and many playful mascots. Other favorite activities returning: arts and crafts, bounce house, outdoor bowling, demos on sign language and Braille and, of course, door prizes and a silent auction with lots of unique items.
