The Deep South Fair

By  | 

Rides that go round and round, food you stuff your face with until you're sick, and performances you'll never forget.

The general manager of Midway Midwest who provides the rides and vendors, Robert Briggs, said, "We have a good arrangement of rides, kid rides, we have some spectacular rides, family rides such as the bumper cars, and quite a lot to offer.

The Deep South Fair is hosted by the Thomasville Exchange Club. The non-profit organization is setting out to make a difference in the lives of children with money from the fair.

Fair Board President Gary Aldridge said, "We participate locally with the Halycon House here in Thomasville. We have several scholarships we fund locally to high schools in the area.

Fifteen percent of the profits from the fair go towards helping with national child abuse advocate groups as well as giving $1,000 scholarships to students of the month from local high schools. The rest of the profit goes towards upkeep of the fairgrounds which the community uses for various things throughout the year.

Aldridge said, "We also use these grounds as a fallout shelter for the Humane Society."

A great deal of good comes from having this fair, so while you're stuffing your face and gasping at stunts, know that just by enjoying yourself, you're helping a greater cause. The fair will continue through Saturday. Admission ranges from four to six dollars.
