It’s that time of year again; time for animal shows, games, carnival rides, cotton candy and entertainment at the Volusia County Fair and Youth Show.
The fair opened Thursday, Nov. 7, with free admission offered to all, thanks to sponsors Bright House Networks and Duke Energy.
This year’s entertainment lineup at the fair includes a sea-lion splash show, an extreme illusions magic show, a model railroad display, and several bands, including Diamond Rio on Nov. 16 and The Platters and The Drifters on Nov. 12.
The fair runs through Nov. 17.
Admission to the fair costs $8 in advance and $10 at the gate for those age 13 and older. Children under 12 will be admitted for $4 in advance and $5 at the gate.
All-day wristbands for carnival rides can also be purchased at Walgreens stores, and cost $15 in advance.
Daily deals for admission and the full schedule of shows and entertainment can be found on the website www.volusiacountyfair.com.
The Florida Department of Health in Volusia County asks fair-goers to take a stroll through a new walk-through exhibit called "Public Health is Everywhere," which is on display at the Talton Building at the fairgrounds.
