Deep Fried Ambassador debut
Our first Deep Fried Ambassador, Suzanne from the Pretty*Swell blog, will kick off her official duties this afternoon when she live-blogs and tweets from our pre-Fair media lunch. Follow @swell_mama on Twitter to see her thoughts on some of the brand new deep-fried foods, entertainers, Farm Animal Frenzy contestants and more.
We’ll also be unveiling another new Fair food that will debut at the media lunch, just like last year’s deep-fried pecan pie and deep-fried mac’n’cheese. Stay tuned!
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.
