Fair Coordinator Tammy Hawkins said there are some new shows including the Great American Frontier show, trick horseback riding and a haunted house.

Upper SC State Fair will not implement new age restrictions like officials in Columbia did with the State Fair there. That came after several incidents.

Coordinators in Pickens County said they have plenty of security and help from deputies.
