Onslow County Fair kicks off


JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The Onslow County Fair kicked off Monday.

The week-long event features rides, games, food and agricultural booths.

Crews spent the morning setting up, and about 25,000 people are expected to attend.

This year’s event features two themed days with special discounts.

“We have a military appreciation day on Tuesday and an education appreciation day on Wednesday,” said Gerald Griffin, fair manager. “There’s a discount for the children, $1 off on the gate and $3 off on the unlimited ride handstamps.”

This year for the first time, there will also be an aerialist.

The regular cost of admission is $5, and the unlimited ride handstamps cost $16.

Gates open for the rest of the week at 4 p.m. and close at 11 p.m.
