(AP) Officials with the South Carolina State Fair are still planning to hold a scaled-down version of the event this year in what they're calling an effort to give the community a bright spot amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The fair announced Wednesday that a drive-thru fair event will be held Oct. 20 and 21 at the fairgrounds in Columbia.

Organizers say the event will be heavy on "unique, car-friendly attractions that highlight South Carolina's agriculture, history, arts and culture."

After nearly two months, South Carolina has finally fallen out of the top five in the U.S. for the 14-day average of new confirmed COVID-19 cases adjusted by population.
