FL Strawberry Festival - Carried with NO issues
Went to the Strawberry Festival down here the other day. Its like a state fair in size and scope.
I saw the standard no offensive shirts, alcohol and of course firearms. Since the signage doesn't carry weight in FL, I proceeded to the front gate, past the deputy sheriff who was watching for bad guys. Even said a few words to him when he spoke to my 3 year old.
There were a LOT of LEOs at the festival. Even had one standing behind me while we were watching the BMX bikers put on thier show. That was the one place I thought I might be spotted and so I did not sit on the bleachers, but stood next to them. Turned around a minute or so later to find a deputy directly behind me. He was watching the show, and not me, so I just did the same. Never seen guys do tricks on bikes like that. Pretty amazing.
I suppose the point of the story is that IF the deputies noticed I was carrying, they didn't do or say anything...even though there were signs outside of each gate saying no firearms allowed.
