1,000 Friends Contest winners!

The HUGE stack of Facebook friends in the drawing! Do you see yours?

Back in the beginning of September, we announced our 1,000 Friends Contest for all of our MySpace and Facebook friends. This is the first year the Fair’s gone online…Fair 2.0! To jumpstart our pages, we wanted to offer our friends an incentive to join us and get the latest news and access to contests. We’ve also found it to be a great sounding board for new ideas and have gotten to know some of friends very well, as you’ve seen on here from guest bloggers and photographers.

Facebook reached 1,000 friends about a week ago, and is now up to 1,227. From the best we can tell, that makes us the Facebook State Fair with the most friends in the country! To celebrate, we’re giving ten lucky friends State Fair prize packs, including 2 admission tickets, a Midway ride booklet, State Fair T-shirt, and more goodies. To decide our winners, we very scientifically cut out slips of paper with each of our friends’ faces and names and drew them out of a hat. Congratulations to our ten lucky winners!

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.
