Original post: For 10 days the Coastal Carolina Fair will carry us through not only Halloween but the tumultuous election. The 52nd edition kicks off Thursday, October 30, at 3 p.m. and ends Saturday, November 8.
Elephants, fireworks, a petting zoo, a circus, and (of course) many rides are all part of the daily entertainment. They also have a number of contests. The fair will also have nightly performances from the likes of Three Dog Night and the Gin Blossoms.
Admission is $5 for children and $8 for adults. 25 "ride tickets" are $20.
The Post and Courier went to the fair last year and has a good write-up about the rides and the fair as a whole, as well as a fun little video.
