WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Winston-Salem City Council made the Dixie Classic Fair name change official Monday night, voting 6-2 to change the name to the Carolina Classic Fair.

The new name was selected at last week's Community Development/Housing/General Government Committee meeting.

It will cost an estimated $97,000 in painting, replacing signage and ordering new banners.

The money will come out of the $2,000,000 in fair reserves.
