Eastern Carolina Agricultural Fair
5226 East Palmetto Street
Florence, SC 29506
The Eastern Carolina Agricultural Fair, located in Florence, South Carolina, is a huge, popular fair in October, with all of the typical fair attractions - rides, games to play, and of course, fair food. It is located on the aptly named Eastern Carolina Agricultural Fairgrounds, and has been going on for over fifty years.
There are about thirty-five rides at the fair these days, including everything from small rides for young children to thrill rides for adrenaline junkies. The Musik Express and Vertigo were the two new rides introduced in 2011. Entertainment changes from year to year, but last year's attractions included magic shows, a clown, pig races, horses, and a petting zoo. There are also exhibits at the fair. Last year's exhibits included arts and crafts, a green tomato contest, the local fire department, jams and jellies, and many more.
Although exhibits, like entertainment, change, you can expect to see the same fair favorite themes if you do visit this year. And why don't you make your way to Florence so you can go to the fair? It sounds like fun!
