Rides return to Cumberland County fair

Posted August 1, 2016

The Cumberland County Fair at the Agri-Expo Center has been open since Friday, but not all of its carnival rides are up and running.

— A year after about half of the rides at the Cumberland County Fair failed inspection, the event has a new partner, according to the Fayetteville Observer.

The newspaper reported that Spectra Venue Management, which runs the fair, struck a deal with Big Rock Amusements to provide carnival rides and entertainment. The same company provides rides for fairs in Lumberton, Wilson and Edenton.

The Cumberland County Fair runs Sept. 9 through Sept. 18 at the Crown Complex.
