The Coastal Carolina Fair is almost here and will be offering new food and performances for your taste buds and ears!

This means new rides, food, and shows for the people of Charleston and surrounding areas.

Among the new food items this year are churros, sweet corn sandwiches, and steak sundaes.

The churros will be filled with three choices of filling: chocolate, guava, or caramel.

The steak sundae consists of fresh cut french fries, layered with cheese and sour cream, a sprinkle of real thick cut bacon, piled with sirloin steak seasoned with a chipotle powder rub, and topped with a cherry tomato. A healthier option, the chicken burrito sundae, will also be available: consisting of black beans, cilantro lime rice, queso cheese, chipotle chicken, fresh salsa, and sour cream.

Among new acts this year is Blood Sweat Tears. If you’re in to rock and jazz, organizers say it’s a performance you won’t want to miss. Blood Sweat Tears will be playing Thursday, October 26 at 7:30 p.m.

Ricky Skaggs will also be performing for the bluegrass listeners on Thursday, November 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Another big addition to this year’s fair are two Latino acts. Jaci Velasquez, a contemporary Christian and Latin pop singer, will be performing on Wednesday, November 1 at 7:30 p.m. Another Latino act playing Sunday, October 29 at 5:30 p.m. is Banda Estrellas de Sinaloa de German Lizarraga.

Fair spokesman Gary Leonard says they hope the new addition of Latino acts draws in more appeal in the Latino community this year.

It should also be known that the Fireball ride will no longer be at this year's fair.

For now, since the fair has not started, people wanting to attend are encouraged to buy their tickets early in order to save money and avoid long lines.

Tickets can be purchased at all Walgreens in the area as well as online all throughout the length of the fair, but people are encouraged to buy their tickets early before October 26 to save between $4-8.
