CHARLESTON, SC (ADAM BRADLEY, WTAT-TV) — I heard a rumor it was now Fall. Turns out it was all lies. With the weather still soggy, muggy, just plain uncomfortable, it’s a great weekend to just get out of town. I’ve got a couple of events that are worth your time if you’re willing to travel!

The South Carolina State Fair starts today and runs through Sunday, October 22nd. Now, it is a bit of a drive to Columbia and of course the Coastal Carolina Fair comes to Ladson on the 26th, but if you just can’t wait to stuff your face with a funnel cake, that’s the trip you’re going to have to make!

We. Love. Beer. We also love music! Put the two together at a massive outdoor venue and you’ve got SC State of Beer! Pack up the tent and head to Bowman, SC for a 2 day camping and tailgating festival at Yonder Field. Billed as “a celebration of craft beer in music in South Carolina” this is bound to satisfy all your tastes. Featuring a lineup of 11 musical artists and countless craft brews, SC State of Beer should be at the top of your list for this Friday and Saturday.

That wraps up Lens on Local for this week! I’m Adam Bradley and I’ll see you there with your shades on!
