It’s Fair Time!The Columbia County Fair continues to spin out fun, along with lots of surprises

Get ready for a whirlwind of entertainment as the 51st Columbia County Fair kicks off November 2 for ten days of pulse-pounding midway rides, outlandish stunt shows and wacky fair food.

This year’s lineup includes returning favorites such as demolition derbies, Chase’s Racing Pigs, a petting zoo and a master chainsaw carver.

New attractions include Lady Houdini, Tree Man Stilt Walkers, Peter Hart & Atlanta Puppet, Cowboy Woody, Michelle’s Magical Poodles, a daring High Dive Show and Horses, Horses, Horses.

The Merchants Association of Columbia County, a non-profit organization of local business volunteers, presents the fair each year at its fairgrounds on Columbia Road across from Patriots Park. Special amenities include free parking with security, free golf cart shuttles, free nightly entertainment and free admission for kids 3 and under.

Proceeds from the fair benefit many local charities and provide scholarships to seniors from each Columbia County public high school. For more information, visit columbiacountyfair.net.
