Got Your Tickets?

Last year's Hugs and Spoons Show didn't draw quite the crowd organizers expected, so this year the Fair Expo Center decided to change course and host Victor Bean's Southern Classic Gun and Knife Show. The doors to the Fuchs Pavilion will open at 10 a.m. this Sunday, and inside will be a veritable redneck nirvana. Besides the aforementioned guns and knives, the show's vendors will also sell ammo, stun guns, pepper spray, and enough camouflage to hide the entire Marlins Manatees dance team. Tickets cost ten bucks, unless you're a uniformed law enforcement officer or a child under 12 years old, in which case, please buy only the multicolored guns that shoot water. There's even a concealed weapons permit class at 2 p.m. for those of you who wouldn't be caught dead wearing a Glock G17.
