Come on now, Who doesn’t love the fair?

That’s a good thing becasue the 54th annual Columbia County Fair kicks off this week with new rides and shows.

Today through November. 10th, kids of all ages can gather at the Columbia County Fairgrounds in Grovetown to enjoy live bands and entertainment including a petting zoo and Sea Lion Splash. How could you have a fair without heart-pounding rides like the Moon Rocket, a 60-foot tall, 360-degree roller coaster loop or the 720, which has two 16-passenger vehicles that swing back and forth and eventually make a complete loop.

More than 60,000 people from across The C-S-R-A visit the Columbia County fair each year,  the Merchants Association of Columbia County.
