Fall Events Are Continuing But Not the Same

As the seemingly never ending year that is 2020 keeps dragging on, the seasons are changing and fall is back. Unfortunately, many of the things that we love about fall, such as football games, fairs and carnivals, and corn mazes may not be the same because of COVID-19. The West Farm Corn Maze, a popular maze in Moncks Corner that is visited annually by local families, will be taking place this year. However, the hour and capacity limits will be adjusted as they aim to follow CDC guidelines for public events. Other events, such as high school football games and Boone Hall’s “Fright Nights” are selling tickets on a pre-order basis only. 

Unfortunately, the Coastal Carolina Fair, an annual attraction that usually takes place around Halloween at the Ladson Exchange Park, will NOT be taking place this year, mostly due to the amount of people that usually fill the park’s capacity for the entire week of the fair. Although, if you still want to experience the fun of the fair and do not mind a drive to Columbia, the South Carolina State Fair is hosting a drive through fail. So despite COVID-19, there are plenty of ways you can get out of the house to have fun this fall, but the most important thing is staying safe and healthy.
