After the Rose Festival in the spring, the Orangeburg County Fair offers the next best opportunity for area residents to gather after a long hot summer. Providing a great time to eat, play and catch up with what's new in the community.
Area businesses (your Neighborhood Realtor included) will be on hand to meet and greet in their respective booths, along with civic groups and local schools. My favorite section is always the art displays, and then the crafts and ribbon winners.
With corn dog, kiddie rides & games enjoyed on the midway in much the same way for much of the fair's traditional 98-year history, a new web site brings this nostalgic event up to date. We are ON-LINE!
The fair will run from Sept. 29 to Oct. 5 this year. Gates open on Monday at 5 pm w/regular admission prices (Adults $6, Children 6-12 $4, and under 6 free) and runs Tues - Sat 12:00 Noon to 10:30 pm. Parking is free, with additional discounts available throughout the week, visit www.orangeburgcountyfair.org for an updated schedule.
