    wow I thought Fl was more open about things like PA... You just can't carry in Fed buildings and Philly here.

    Florida is legal to carry in a park. I'm not sure if this one is in a park though... It's fair grounds, which I believe are a private business.

    In your mind
    You can't carry in a goverment building down either, or any goverment office for that matter. If you accidently walk into the post office while carrying, you're commiting a federal crime.

    As for the fair.....If it is sponsored by the goverment, I would just ask.

    It would most likely fall into private business like it does here. But unless you're are acting like an idiot they won't know, and if you actually had to use it then who cares.

    I'd like to obey all laws surrounding it if possible.. never know when you might accidentally bump into a LEO (physically bump into) or print.
