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!
