Horry County Fair Set to Bring Carnival Fun to the Grand Strand

Carnival rides, games, exhibits, funnel cakes (along with a lengthy list of other fun — and mostly fried — fair foods), live entertainment, even racing pigs and a petting zoo — nowhere but the county fair can you find this unique mix of fun and family-friendly activities. And from April 20th through the 29th, the 3rd Annual Horry County Fair will bring all of these attractions and more to the Myrtle Beach Speedway.

For 10 days, the speedway grounds will come alive with the sights, sounds and activities found only at the carnival. On most days, fair admission is $5 for adults, $3 for military members and seniors, and $3 for kids ages 5-11. (Kids 4 and under are always free!) Also on most days, all-you-can-ride wristbands are available for $25. But be on the lookout (or just read on) — bargain-hunting attendees can catch some special deals on certain days of the event. Here’s the schedule for the 2018 edition of the Horry County Fair:
