10,000 fans of summer


In 2008, we created a Facebook profile for the N.C. State Fair. We were humming along until we tried to accept our 5,001st friend request during the 2009 Fair. Facebook places a cap on the number of friends a profile is allowed to have – 5,000. Bummer. So, we created a Facebook fan page to connect with all of our N.C. State Fair fans.

Maintaining two profiles for the same event has been difficult and confusing. This summer, we began transitioning profile friends over to our Facebook fan page. You can now like the N.C. State Fair and stay informed on the latest deep-fried news, entertainment and promotions you have come to expect from the profile page. Starting today, the profile page will focus on the numerous year-round activities that happen at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds, such as this weekend’s Fourth of July celebration.

About the promotion:
We’ve been working to transition everyone, but we need your help. If you haven’t already done so, like the N.C. State Fair. Suggest the page to your friends and encourage them to like us, too.

Our goal is to connect with 10,000 fans by July 15 at 5 p.m. If we reach that goal, all the fans who liked us will be eligible to receive an adult admission ticket at the discounted group rate of $5.*

Thanks for being great friends, followers and fans. If you haven’t already done so, you can like the N.C. State Fair below.

*Some restrictions apply. See website for more details.

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.
