Lazydays, the nation's largest RV dealership and RV Authority, is once again sponsoring Salute to Heroes Day at the Florida State Fair. On Opening Day of the Fair, Thursday, Feb. 4, all military, first responders, police and firefighters will receive free admission (with proper identification).

As part of the sponsorship, Lazydays will award a one-week stay in an RV at the Lazydays RV Resort to a lucky “hero.”

The sponsorship of Heroes Day is part of a multi-year partnership agreement between Lazydays and the Florida State Fair Authority (FSFA), providing Lazydays with a full calendar of branded events. Both Lazydays and the FSFA continue to benefit from promotional commitments and support during the State Fair and year-round blockbuster events and festivals.

“Lazydays is committed to our goal of supporting hometown families and our community,” said FSFA Executive Director Chuck Pesano. “Lazydays has been a great neighbor to the Florida State Fairgrounds for many years now, and we are proud to partner with them to honor these brave men and women.”

“Our partnership with The Florida State Fair Authority has been a great fit from the start,” said Lazydays CMO John Lebbad. "It is an honor for Lazydays to sponsor this special day at the Florida State Fair by recognizing and celebrating our local heroes."
