John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Speechless Sundays - A Perfect Day for a Colorful Cocoa Beach Fall Fair!

Speechless Sundays - A Perfect Day for a Colorful Cocoa Beach Fall Fair!

The 46th annual Our Saviour's Fair was held on Oct. 15th, 16th and 17th this year. It's a tradition here in Cocoa Beach and a great place to find old friends you haven't seen in a while. Marla and I had their famous Kolbassa with sauerkraut and a grilled chicken shish-ka-bob. Of course, I washed it all down with an ice cold beer while making new freinds in the picnic area :-) There is a draw for $10,000 and we have 3 tickets so I'll let you know if we win!

Hi Paul - We had a good time just relaxing and strolling around the fair. The weather was perfect!

I love the colors of that carnival John!  See that big ball on the water.  I may be older than the gods, but I want to do that one day!  Really nice pictures of people having a great time!

John, Sure looks like everyone is having a lot of fun.  Cocoa Beach looks like the place to live.

Myrl - That ball does look like fun, doesn't it? Fall fairs are great!

Diane - Cocoa Beach is a great place to live and with tourist season almost upon us, there will be events happening all the time.

Rich - So that was you I saw eating funnell cakes by the beer tent! :-)

After looking at your pictures John, it makes me want to be a kid again! I'm with Myrl, if I had a chance, old or not, I'd be in that crazy ball or upside down!

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) over 9 years ago

Patricia - I'm sure we all have fond memories of going to the fair as a kid. It's like being let loose in a candy store :-) That crazy ball seems like it's all the rage now.

Thanks Steve, I will.

Debra - I've been on the upside down thing a few times in the past but now I'm happy just to take photos :-) I like to keep my lunch where I put it!

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 9 years ago

John - The fair is definitely colorful.  They maybe for kids, but I'd love to try the aqua balls.

As if sun, surf and bikinis weren't enought to draw you in, Cocoa Beach adds a fair like this! Looks like lots of fun! Good luck on the draw John!

Hi John, Looks like you had a great time at the Cocoa Beach Fair. But, I didn't see you on that Zipper after you had your Kolbassa, Shish-ka-bob and beer.  LOL  We've been having perfect weather for a weekend of fun like that one.

Al and Peggy - We never received the phone call telling us we won the 10K so I guess we'll have to try again next year. Oh well, back to work!

Sandy - The weather has been great and I love this time of year. No zipper for me - I'll keep my lunch where it belongs :-)

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 9 years ago

Sorry you didn't win the $10,000, but looks like a fun time for all.

Posted by Mickey McCoy (Coldwell Banker Stuart and Watts) over 9 years ago

Mickey - Thanks for the condolences. Everyone can use an extra 10K :-)

John, Gosh that Aqua Ball looks like a lot of fun! Have you tried it?
