South Carolina State Fair Days Away

September is in the books, and October on the calendar means it’s fair time in the Carolinas. South Carolina’s State Fair opens at 3:00 pm on October 10th in Columbia explains Nancy Smith Assistant Manager of the SC State fair:

“This is our 143rd fair, we will be celebrating with twelve days of fun. This year’s theme is a continuation of last year, Find Your Happy.”

One of this year’s new attractions at the SC State Fair is the Passport to Sustainability educational program for kids:

“It starts with an exhibit called “From Field to Fair.” Young folks can go online to play games, download their passport and learn all about agriculture. They can become a certified state fair ambassador of agriculture.”

One of the really fun things about the program according to Smith is that many of the games can be played on-line ahead of time:

“The logo on line is actually an ear of corn representing the “from field” and a corn dog for the “to fair.” They can go on line and download the passport and play all of these games that are fun and educational.”

Again, the South Carolina State Fair opens on Wednesday, October 10th at 3:00 pm at the State Fair grounds in Columbia. For more information visit .
