Come One, Come All! The South Carolina State Fair is upon us! As one of South Carolina's favorite attractions, the S.C. Fair will run from October 11th until October 22nd. The South Carolina Fair, which is ranked as one of the top 50 fairs in the nation, features 12 days of delicious food, exciting amusement rides, big name concert entertainment, and various competitions.

If you plan on going to the fair, make sure you take some cash as fair parking starts at $5 cash only. The money generated goes directly to South Carolina scholarship funding. There are some curfew stipulations to help ensure safety regarding entrance of the fair. All persons 16 and under will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to enter after 6pm. Anyone 18 or older will not be allowed to enter the fair grounds without identification after 6pm. Security personnel, information booths, and park assistants can be found throughout the fair grounds. Although South Carolina continues to break heat index records for this time of year, the fair is definitely a great place to be any time of the day.
