This past weekend, Marco Island went to the fair. At least, those who were willing to brave a brisk wind and below average temperatures went, to the second annual Fair on Marco, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Veterans’ Community Park.
They rode the midway rides, frolicked in the bounce house and humongous slides, and pestered their parents for carnival food like cotton candy and do people really eat deep fried candy bars? They spun the wheel at the Kriger Orthodontics booth for the chance to win an iPad and other prizes. They listened to homegrown and imported entertainment, including a ZZ Top tribute band Trezz Hombres, the Lords of Cool, and the MICMS Jazz Band and Starz from Marco Island Charter Middle School.
