Collier County Fair

Thursday, Feb. 5 starting at 6 p.m. through Sunday, Feb. 15.

Collier County Fairgrounds on Immokalee Rd., 10 miles east of I-75.

Admission: $8 for 12 and older, $4 for ages 6-11 and free for 5-year-olds and younger. $18 for Megapass and $5 for parking

Info: (239) 455-1444 or www.colliercountyfair.com


The 33rd annual Collier County Fair will open Thursday for a 10-day run with more than the usual fair fare.

You will have your midway with the carnival games, the food and the thrill rides along with the livestock shows, a truck pull, a demolition derby and bull riding.

Then there are the special events with their own unique, local flavor such as the Collier County Dance Contest and the Miss Collier County Fair Sweetheart Contest.

Variety is the name of the game again this year at the entertainment tent, which will host singers, dancers and a plethora of performers including the banjo champions of Kentucky and Indiana, plus — and you’ve got to see this — Stage hypnotist Terrance B and Hypno the Dog.

The fairgrounds open Thursday at 6 p.m. and will be full tilt through Feb. 15.

Gates open on Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. and weekdays at 6 p.m.

There are special days planned for senior citizens (Feb. 7) and members of U.S. armed forces (Feb. 8). The annual Midnight Madness promotion is Feb. 13. On the following Saturday — Valentine’s Day — you can get a special deal if you get married at the fair.

There will also be a “Bike Night” — no parking fee that day for motorcycles — and a “Ladies Night.”

General admission prices will be the same as last year: $8 for adults, $4 for children 6 to 12 and free for children 5 and under. Mega-passes are jumping $2 this year — from $18 to $20 — but that includes admission and unlimited rides.

The Collier County Fairgrounds are on Immokalee Road, 10 miles east of Interstate 75.

$25,000 scholarship available for one high school student

One Collier County high school student will receive a $25,000 college scholarship just for going to the Collier County Fair.

WHO QUALIFIES? Any active Collier County public, private, or home-schooled high school student (grades 9-12.)

HOW DOES IT WORK? Purchase an $8 admission ticket at the fair on Friday and you’ll get a two-part ticket. High school students should enter the drawing right then. Family and friends can give the ticket to a high school student of their choice. The more tickets the high school student has, the better the student’s chance.

THE DRAWING. Friday night, 15 tickets will be drawn by a committee of fair board members. The numbers will be posted at the Collier County Fair Grounds and at www.colliercountyfair.com

Students with selected tickets must contact the fair office (455-1444) before 9 p.m., Monday, Feb. 9, and let officials know that they have one of the qualifying tickets. The final drawing will be held Wednesday, Feb. 11, on the main stage at the fairgrounds at 8 p.m.

THE FINE PRINT. Students must show proof of registration in a Collier County public, private, or home school program at the time of the drawing. Tickets will be drawn in a reverse raffle format. The last ticket drawn will be the winner of the $25,000 scholarship. Students must be present to win.

THE PAYOUT. Funds will be held in an escrow account until the student completes high school and enrolls in an accredited university, college, community college, post-secondary technical school or specialized post secondary training school. Money will be issued directly to the institution of higher learning. The scholarship recipient must be enrolled and attending school in order to access the funds.

LAST YEAR’S WINNER. Last year, Nicole Groll of Naples won the scholarship. She’s now attending the University of South Florida.

That's a great question -- I'll see if I can find out. If anybody beats me to it, please "add comment" to answer this question!
