Show your ‘super hero’ side and help the South Florida Fair set record


Want to be part of something “super?” Now’s your chance, as the South Florida Fair is seeking to establish a record of “Most People Dressed As Superheroes at a Fair.”

With its “Not All Superheroes Wear Capes” theme, the fair is calling on the public to participate by wearing their favorite superhero attire so it can then challenge fairs across the country.

Best part? Participation is free! The first 500 qualified “superheroes” get a free fair admission and ride wristband on Thursday, Jan. 17 to get in the fair and ride the rides after the attempt has been recorded. The challenge will take place from 6 to 7 p.m.

“Whether it’s a purchased or homemade costume, we’d love to see it,” said COO and Vice President Vicki Chouris. “Let’s show the world that superheroes are for everyone!”

Here are the guidelines:

  1. Each person must be in full costume from head to toe.
  2. All costumes must represent a superhero from an established cartoon, comic book, TV show or movie. Visit the fair’s website, for suggestions. No villains will be allowed to enter the area
  3. All costumes must be PG-13 or less. No nudity or risqué costumes.
  4. No harmful or potentially harmful materials will be allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, water, cigarettes, flames, fireworks, silly string and any other substance that can be fired, launched or dripped.
  5. Props will be allowed at the discretion of fair’s security division and PBSO deputies at the event. Please see the website for the Costume and Prop/Weapons policy.
  6. No hazardous or any materials that will involve cleanup or damage to the area will be allowed. This includes any liquids, confetti, silly string, etc.

The South Florida Fair kick off its 2019 edition Jan. 17 when it hosts its Ride-A-Thon beginning at 5 p.m. The very next day – Friday, Jan. 18 – the fair kicks into high gear, running through Feb. 3.
