TAMPA, Fla. — There is so much to do and see at this year's Florida State Fair. With carnival games, rides, and of course so much unique food, there is plenty to check out at the fair. One of the highlights of any fair experience is definitely the performances. 

Bello Nock is performing every day of the fair. His circus act is full of tricks and stunts including a human canon shot, over a rotating helicopter blade.
But for Nock, it is the location of his show, not his stunts, that really matter.

A Tampa family with four little kids looked on and couldn't help but make exclamations of awe. "I had no idea motorcycles could do that."

The Sunday special was the Demolition Derby show. This weekend-only event packed the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center. Everyone wanted to see these Florida drivers ram into one another. One driver who crushed the competition in the first two events was also one of the only two women competing today.

"To see the little kids faces, and they just light up with joy when they see us doing this. And then they find out I am a female, and they just love it. I do it strictly for the fans," said demolition driver Skylar Graves.

This event features an roundabout intersection sure to cause plenty of destruction and carnage. After that we will be setting up the cars for the smashing and crashing of the Demolition Derby. This hour event is sure to be non-stop destruction, you won't want to miss. Saturday night looks to be a great night at the fair and the Demolition Derby is a great way to cap that off!

RED BULL TRAILER RACE or JUST CLICKBAIT?

A few years back red bull posted this “Caravan race” video featuring F1 team mates having a go at what it would be like to compete in one of our Trailer Races. It’s a bit funny to see a Aston Martin super car with a tow bar and caravan attached, but if your going to play around with idea why no go for broke and hit the damn things? Clearly this video is being use to promote the drivers and the brand by putting them in odd, crazy or wild situations and for the most part it does.

But you know what would get a hell of a lot more views?
