Cumming Country Fair Brings Family Fun and Thrills Oct. 5-15 Fireman High Dive

Fireman High Dive

Firemen High Dive, a new ground act, is sure to be exciting. New ground acts this year include:

Lady Houdini: An escape artist who has successfully performed thousands of public feats and broken Harry Houdini’s record for the most water escapes ever. She is currently the only female anywhere in the world attempting the water torture cell.

Horses, Horses, Horses: Lisa Dufresne delights and entertains the entire family.  She has taken her life-long love and passion for animals and transformed it into a stunning show of animal mastery. She is traveling with three horses and nine American miniatures.  Her horses perform five acts, including a comedy show!

Firemen High Dive Show: Big splashes in a small pool! In addition to comedy dives, this show features Olympic-style dives, a high dive and a fire dive! Parents and kids of all ages will be amazed and enjoy this engaging and family-friendly show.

Cowboy Woody: Todd Key can be tall. Really, really tall. When he’s up on stilts, he is over 10 feet tall and can be seen from over 100 yards away, which means he’ll be easy to find at the fair. Whether he is juggling, ball-spinning, or lasso-twirling, he’s a man we can all look up to.

Atlanta Puppet Show: This kid-focused show features marionettes and other puppetry styles from master puppeteer, Peter Hart.

Of course the fun also includes daily historical displays and demonstrations in the Fairgrounds’ Heritage Village and Cherokee Indian Village; high-quality carnival rides and games on the Drew Exposition Carnival Midway; and tons of tasty treats and exhibits from dozens of fair vendors.

Did you know?  The Cumming Country Fair & Festival was first held in 1995, but at that time was only five days in duration. Over the years, the event has grown into the 11-day extravaganza we all know and love today!
