The N.C. State Fair kicks off in a few months, but there’s a ton of preparation already in motion. We’ll bring you behind-the-scenes interviews with fairgrounds employees working to bring you “A Whole Lotta Happy” when the gates open Thursday, Oct. 15.
Food is the No. 1 reason people come to the State Fair, a fact Letrice Vines knows well. As commercial space administrator, Letrice chooses and coordinates each and every vendor for the Fair, including the folks behind your favorite crazy-creative deep-fried creations.
After the exhibitor application deadline on July 1, Letrice is tasked with combing through each application to decide which new booths will join the tried-and-true favorites you see each year. On top of that, she also manages all of the lost and found items left on the fairgrounds during the Fair.
Check out GreenThing’s interview with Letrice to find out a little more about what she’s busy with right now, as well as the deep-fried food she would love to see at the Fair.
