The 2016 Political Hob Nob, described by the Chamber as an old-fashioned political rally, will enable members of the public to discuss campaign points with candidates over BBQ and voice their views in a survey by Polk County’s Supervisor of Elections, with real-time results tabulated that evening.

Contenders from federal and state as well as local tiers will be on hand for active canvassing for upcoming elections. The meet-and-greet will be housed in an air-conditioned hangar providing interactive displays, historic aircraft and Howard Hughes’ own aviation collection.

Sun 'n Fun Aerospace Center will be joined by co-sponsors Carter’s BBQ; Citrus Connection; Clark, Campbell, Lancaster & Munson P.A.; Republic Services and The Mosaic Company.

Admission is $20 per person in advance or $25 per person at the door. Money-saving corporate 10-packs are available for $180; additionally, a Candidate’s Table can be purchased for $225. The deadline for Candidate’s Table registration is July 26.

 Aerospace Discovery at the Florida Air Museum is located at the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus, 4175 Medulla Rd. in Lakeland.
