Thus far, our wonderful fans have posted pics ranging from poses with the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile and Clifford the Big Red Dog to rows of brightly colored apples and spinning fair rides.
Now, the time has come to announce the first deep-fried photographer who will win a prize pack full of State Fair goodies (Drum roll please). The lucky winner is our great fan and friend, Meredith Foster. Here is her winning photo:
Capturing the crisp autumn leaves with a background of Fair favorites, Meredith’s photo celebrates old and new traditions. Today’s waterfall, located near Dorton Arena, has been a landmark and symbol of the N.C. State Fair since constrction of the original waterfall near Gate 11 in 1940. To the left, the Jim Graham Building, the Fair’s livestock arena, represents North Carolina’s agricultural heritage. To the right, lights, food and rides represent the new tastes and thrills of the Fair.
So we ask you, what’s so great about the N.C. State Fair? Judging from Meredith’s photo, the answer is everything. Whether it’s the exhibits, rides, deep-fried food or livestock, the Fair has something to offer everyone. Keep posting photos on our Facebook fan page and maybe your photo will be chosen next!
