Erwin couple reports that advance ticket sales are painless

Members of the Deep Fried blogging crew visited several of the advance ticket sales locations this week to pass out T-shirts and other fun promotional items to a few lucky advance sale shoppers.

Buying tickets in advance saves money and time compared to waiting to buy them at the State Fair, but don’t just take our word for it. The Harringtons of Erwin were winners of one of the special promotional prize packs and were kind enough to talk about their shopping experience.

About Merrie Go Round

Merrie Go Round is the midway alter-ego of Andrea Ashby, who has officially spent 252 days during the past 24 years at the N.C. State Fair. That's perfect attendance in case you were wondering. In addition to promoting the Fair, looking for untold Fair stories and working on various special events, I also spend a great deal of time roaming the grounds taking photos for the Website and State Fair publications. I like to keep my eyes and ears posted for the unusual and different things that make the State Fair such a great celebration of North Carolina people, traditions and history. I look forward to sharing with you the things I come across on my journey.
