Fair workers love the lifestyle

MANATEE -- As a third-generation fair worker, Morgan Cudo has some interesting childhood memories. Instead of swimming in a swimming pool full of other children and pool toys during the summer, she jumps into a pool full of bumper boats at county fairs across the country. “On hot summer days we’d swim in the bumper boat pool before the people came in,” Cudo said. “You got that fair experience that no one else ever has.” Cudo is now one of the hundreds of people working at the Manatee County Fair and can be found at one of the balloon games each day, handing out darts and prizes. She grew up going to a traditional school and traveling across the Eastern seaboard during the summer with her family.
