Cape Fear Fair & Expo is back and better than ever


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Cape Fear Fair & Expo is back and better than ever. There is more food, fun, and of course, fried food.

Tomorrow night the Wilmington International Airport will light up and fill with the smells of delicious food, and the sounds of laughter from the young and old alike.

Fair Manager Skip Watkins says there are four new rides, and a few new entertaining acts.

“We’ve got a magician and a hypnotist on stage called ‘Agricadabra,’ and we’ve got Old McNally’s Pig Derby back, so we’ve got a lot of free entertainment,” Watkins said. “So once you’re in, not only is the entertainment included, but the livestock exhibits, the agriculture, but my favorite is the food.”

Burgers, funnel cake and deep fried Oreos are just a few of those tasty treats.

Tickets are $20 and include unlimited rides. Children under 36 inches can ride selected rides for FREE with a paying adult 16 years or older. There’s also a $5 walk-around ticket available at the gate Monday-Thursday, which excludes rides.
