Egg art from the 2013 N.C. State Fair

In communities across the state this weekend, children and adults alike will be dyeing and adorning eggs for hunting and table decorations. We wanted to take a minute to show off a few of the decorated eggs from the 2013 N.C. State Fair Egg Art Competition sponsored by the N.C. Egg Association.

Participants blow out the material inside the egg and then decorate based on a specific fair theme. For 2013, the theme was “North Carolina’s Homecoming.” Eggs become property of the N.C. Egg Association and are used in displays to promote North Carolina eggs across the state.

If you would like to enter the 2014 N.C. State Fair Egg Art Competition, the premium book will be available online mid-July with information about this year’s contest. The “eggsciting” 2014 theme  will be “The October Original.”

About Funhouse

On the blog I go by Fun House (AKA Heather Overton). At the Fair you'll find me checking out the blue ribbon winners or hanging out in Heritage Circle. It would be hard for me to pick a favorite part of the Fair, but I can tell you one thing I hate - leaving it on the last day. I can't wait for opening day!
