The long-standing reputation of fun for all ages and that unbeatable Miami flamboyance proved successful once again as the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair hosted 590,000 fairgoers this past March, which was a 2.5 percent increase from last year. In addition to the 95 rides we provided, the entertainment and fare was as wondrously diverse as are the colorful residents who attend this perennial event. It is no surprise why South Florida is home to one of the top fairs of its kind in North America and the largest in the state of Florida.
“We are delighted with the results of the 2014 Miami-Dade County Youth Fair results and the hard work, dedication and support of the incredible team with North American Midway Entertainment, ” said Bob Hohenstein, President and CEO. “Once again, as they have for decades, the NAME staff provided our guests with excellence in guest services, employee training, ride safety, cleanliness and a magnificent experience for everyone including The Youth Fair’s staff. We look forward to 2015 and the opportunity to welcome NAME back to Miami and our fairgrounds.”
This year was the first year North American Midway Entertainment sold Pay-One-Price ride all day wristbands every day during the event, including weekends, and it was an overwhelming success. We are pleased to see the fair had increased attendance and our ride revenue was up too. Also, special thanks to all our employees for a great start to our season!
