We’ll be giving away two tickets on Twitter and two tickets on Facebook each weekday until then, so double your chances and check us out on both sites.

We really enjoy talking with our social media friends each day, and we’ve learned a lot from them along the way. This is a way for us to say a big “Thank you!” and an even bigger “We hope to see you at the Fair!”

Head on over to our Twitter page (that’s and our Facebook page ( You’ll definitely get some behind-the-scenes info and maybe you’ll win free admission for yourself and a friend.

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.
