Squealing, speed-racing pigs. Giant blue ribbon pumpkins. Old-fashioned ferris wheel rides. And, of course, deep fried food on a stick.
Admit it, you’ve been counting down the days until the 2008 N.C. State Fair–and we have too. That’s why the N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services has started its first State Fair blog dedicated to bringing you the inside scoop on what makes the State Fair come together every year. We’ll be your go-to guide during the Fair as well, bringing you the tastiest foods, flashiest rides, newest exhibitions and coolest State Fair characters.
I’m CottonCandy, and I’ll be just one of your hosts on this wild ride behind-the-scenes of North Carolina’s biggest celebration of agriculture. Our 2008 theme is Take Time for a Great Time, so be sure to take the time to check back daily, as we’ll constantly be posting new interviews, little-known facts, pictures, videos and more. Check out the Fair Web site at www.ncstatefair.org for the latest info on entertainers, tickets and events.
