So­cial Circle Fair

The Covington News - - Opinion -

Mixed in with the un­bear­ably hot weather these past few weeks, we’ve had a cou­ple of nearly per­fect au­tumn-like days that re­mind us of the bet­ter weather that’s to come. Just our opin­ion of course.

While the oc­ca­sional cooler day is a sign that fall is com­ing, a more re­li­able sig­nal is the ar­rival of the an­nual So­cial Circle Fair, which is be­ing held from Sept. 4-8, and will be lo­cated be­hind the So­cial Circle High School, just off West Hightower Trail on Al­covy Road.

The So­cial Circle Fair is spon­sored by the Rotary Club of So­cial Club and is a good old fash­ioned fam­ily event fea­tur­ing clas­sic rides and, of course, sug­ary, de­li­cious fair food.

Take the chil­dren to en­joy the pony and he­li­copter rides (not to­gether) and stick out for the mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment. The full sched­ule of events is avail­able at the web­site of the So­cial Circle Bet­ter Home­town Pro­gram, so­cial­cir­cle­gabht.com.

We don’t see too many fairs out this way any­more, so take some time to en­joy the nos­tal­gia and con­trib­ute to a good cause; fair pro­ceed prof­its will be used for the club’s schol­ar­ships and other community projects.

Ad­mis­sion is $1 (chil­dren less than 1 year old are free). Rides cost ex­tra, but you can buy a spe­cial wrist­bands for $20 ($15 if you buy them ahead of time) that al­low for un­lim­ited carnival rid­ing.

Wrist­bands can be pur­chased now at So­cial Circle ACE, the Bank of So­cial Circle and Pin­na­cle Bank.

For more de­tails, be sure to pick up Sun­day’s pa­per.

Come out, meet your neigh­bors and be pre­pared to have fun.
