"Panama City Beach Fun Fair" Ends Early

By  | 

PANAMA CITY BEACH--- Driving down Thomas Drive, you may notice the "Panama City Beach Fun Fair" has come down.

Thursday was the last day of the 17 ride fair. Officials say Panama City Beach was an ideal location, but it just wasn't bringing in enough money. They partially blame the lack of attendance on being away from the beach.

The carnival officially opened Memorial Day weekend and was to stay through Labor Day. They are now planning to finish the rest of the fair in Athens, Georgia. Officials say they hope to return next season.
