    I will be working the Florida State Beekeepers booth at the state fair on Wednesday the 13th of February.
    If any Florida beeks are going, stop by and say Hello.

    Keith, sorry about being late with the pictures, I forgot that I had them on the camera until I went to post about my swarm. Here they are. bees 03-04-13 001.jpg bees 03-04-13 002.jpg

    I will let you know that this display stays up all year long. Its kind of a permanent fixture at the fairgrounds.

    Thanks for posting the booth looks great, well displayed. The hex shelf with the photos and displayed items look realty attractive. great Ideas in there. Is it manned all by volinteers all year or do you hire some one to be there? Do you sell honey and keep the bees there all year there also.

    Keith, the booth stays there all year. It is only manned when there is something going on at the fair and it is by volunteers.

    The honey and the bees leave when there is nothing going on.
