Fireworks fans

A few weeks back, we announced we would periodically feature on this blog some of our favorite photos that fans have posted to our Facebook page. Here’s our latest winner.

Photo of grandfather and grandson watching fireworks

Photo by Jewel Wyrick

This photo caught our eye because it offers a different perspective on the nightly fireworks show. We’re used to seeing photos of fireworks (and there have been some really, really good ones). This one, submitted by Jewel Wyrick, shows a grandfather and his grandson enjoying the show on a cool fall night. It also reinforces the fact that the State Fair is a tradition for generations of families.

For being selected as a deep-fried photographer, Jewel will receive one of our famous N.C. State Fair swag packs. Congrats, Jewel!

If you would like to be part of the promotion, share your photos with us on Facebook.

About Flying Bob

Most folks know me as Brian Long, but when it comes to the State Fair blog, I'm Flying Bob. Why Flying Bob? It's one of my favorite carnival rides. Plus, once the fair kicks off, I feel like I'm flying in circles at high speed. (All that's missing is a ride attendant shouting, "Do you wanna go fasterrrrr!") Here at the State Fair Press Office, it's our job to give you as much information about this massive event as possible. That's one of the reasons I enjoy contributing to this blog. I hope you'll enjoy reading it.
