FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 1, 2015) – The Fair at Fenway South returns to JetBlue Park for three big weekends in November.
The fair will open weekends from Nov. 6 to 22 at JetBlue Park, located at 11500 Fenway South Drive in Fort Myers, from 5 to 11:30 p.m. on Fridays and from 1 to 11:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
An exhibit new to the fair in 2015, the Kangaroo Experience is a collection of kangaroos on display where there will be several opportunities each day to learn more about the kangaroos and meet them up close and personal.
Award-wining Illusionist Lance Gifford, who has toured much of the U.S. and Canada, will amaze fairgoers at Fenway South with his fast-paced and highly entertaining magical illusion show. He and his company perform some of the world’s most amazing illusions including the “Metamorphosis,” once performed by the late great Harry Houdini. Some of the “family members” in his troupe include doves, rabbits, a chow chow, toy and standard poodles, a Macaw parrot and Burmese python snakes. Gifford’s show can be seen live at the fair several times each day.
On Friday and Saturday nights at 10, the Las Vegas hypnotist show will make believers of the audience, as the hypnotist persuades a man to dance like Beyoncé, convinces fairgoers it’s sunny at night and more.
Another crowd favorite is the Banana Derby, a race where monkeys dressed in jockey outfits race on trained dogs around a track. Fairgoers may even meet the monkeys up close for photo opportunities after the races, which are held several times each day.
The fair also features a large petting zoo and exotic animal exhibit where attendees may observe lemurs, exotic birds, monkeys and dozens of creatures normally only found in the best zoos in the U.S. This attraction is open during all fair hours.
All live entertainment and shows are free with fair admission.
Wade Shows, one of the largest carnival companies in North America, will be bringing its rides and attractions to the midway at the event. Many of the fair’s rides appear each year at the Florida State Fair and are being brought exclusively to Fort Myers by the producers of the event, including plenty of rides for younger kids to enjoy.

Pay-One-Price unlimited rides wristbands are also available at a discount through the website before the start of the fair for $20 each. Individual ride tickets may also be purchased at the event.
