Funnel cakes to go: Drive-thru fair draws thousands in SC

Organizers say thousands of people turned out for a drive-thru fair in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Organizers say thousands of people turned out to peer at agricultural exhibits from their car windows and grab to-go funnel cakes at a drive-thru fair in South Carolina.

Fair Manager Nancy Smith says in a news release that more than 10,000 people came through in cars on the first day, and one person arrived at 4:30 a.m. because he wanted to be the first person in line.

“Safety has always been our first priority, and we are so thrilled to see how our patrons have embraced the changes while still showing tremendous support for the fair,” Smith said.
