The Coastal Carolina fair is back, Thurs. Oct. 31 through Sun. Nov. 10, bringing with it  funnel cakes, contests, ferris wheels, and nauseating zero gravity machines that we all insist on riding every year. Discounted tickets are available through Oct. 30, and general admission tickets start at $12 on opening day.

Starting on Oct. 31 with Colt Ford, the fair features a number of artists and entertainers including a local fave who now resides in Nashville, Haley Mae Campbell. Check out the full list online.

In addition to the live entertainment and rides, the Coastal Carolina Fair is bringing in a host of new activities this year including a Biergarten open daily, a daredevil extreme zone for thrill-seekers, the first annual fiddle contest, and an FFA tractor driving contest.
