Residents going to see fireworks at this year’s Fire Over Aiken also have the chance to see products and services offered by many Aiken County businesses.

Atlantic Broadband will present the inaugural Home and Garden Show for the first time at the 2018 Fire Over Aiken on Saturday, June 23, at the Western Carolina State Fairgrounds, 1566 Columbia Highway N.

Each vendor will have a booth set up in the exhibit hall on the fairgrounds and attendees can drop by to see what each vendor offers, said Jenifer Granade, spokeswoman for Atlantic Broadband.

The show will include 25 vendors, which includes Tupperware/Shirley Pinkston, One Kind of a Wreath, Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor, Leaf Filter, Paradise Home Improvement, Randy Brown, Atlantic Broadband, Richard Whitaker, C&B Roofing, Bathfitter, Readings by Grace, White Rose Eclectic, Aiken Standard, Margaret’s Garden Adult Daycare, Southern Siding, Enloe Residential, Aiken Works and Aiken Technical College.


The gates for the Home and Garden Show will be open to the public at 9 a.m. on June 23, and it is expected to end around 5 p.m., Granade said.

Fire Over Aiken is presented by Atlantic Broadbrand and sponsored by Aiken Standard, Western Carolina State Fair and AllStar Tents & Events.

“This is the first Home and Garden Show that’s a part of the Fire Over Aiken,” said Diane Daniell, with Aiken Standard. “This is a community event that is free to the public. It’s going to be fun for all ages.”

Attendees will also get to enjoy carnival rides, games and food concessions. There will also be a kids talent show at noon and a Womanless Beauty Pageant at 3 p.m.

A 15- to 20-minute fireworks display will end the evening around 9 p.m.

The Fire Over Aiken celebration is a free event, meaning there will be no fee to attend the show or to park at the fairgrounds.
