Gov. Scott will throw switch at Florida State Fair

6

February

Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday will "throw the switch" and officially light up the midway at the Florida State Fair in Tampa. The governor -- known as an early riser -- will light up the fair at 6:35 a.m. along with Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

The event kicks off a series of events in Tampa, including a Cabinet meeting, the annual Governor's Day Luncheon at the fair and the unveiling of a new Visit Florida TV advertising campaign. Scott will not take part in one fair-related event: the traditional ride down the fair's giant slide, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Putnam, CFO Jeff Atwater and Attorney General Pam Bondi are expected to take part in the slide.
