SwampFest 2012 Brings Midway Fun to Land O' Lakes

The annual festival includes rides, games and live entertainment.

 Round up the kiddies and the antacids. SwampFest continues throughout the weekend with plenty to do—and eat—at the annual festival in Land O' Lakes.

The fundraising event turns the grounds of the Land O’ Lakes Community Center into a midway and entertainment venue, complete with live entertainment, rides, games and a variety of vendors.

Tickets are $20 at the gate.

The community event is sponsored by the Land O' Lakes High School Athletic Booster Club, but many local schools participate by selling tickets and setting up fundraising booths at the festival, event coordinator Doug Hutchinson said.

The Miss and Mr. SwampFest pageant will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3.

Live music and performances will take place throughout the weekend. Check out the complete SwampFest entertainment line up.

Weekend event hours:

Saturday, Nov. 3, noon - 11 p.m.

Sunday, Nov. 4, noon- 6 p.m.

The community center is located at 5401 Land O' Lakes Blvd.
