Meet the new Deep Fried Ambassador

Deep Fried AmbassadorOur very first Deep Fried Ambassador, Suzanne from the Pretty*Swell blog, blew away all our expectations last year and set the bar pretty high. Nevertheless, we had some amazing entries from people wanting to be the 2010 Deep Fried Ambassador. These bloggers represented Fair veterans and rookies, singles and parents, deep-fried food lovers and exhibit enthusiasts. We had so many great entries that it’s taken us an extra day to decide.

Luckily, we reached a decision about an hour ago and are happy to announce that the 2010 Deep Fried Ambassador is Ashlee from the LilBlueAshes blog. She won us over with her experience entering scrapbooking competitions, working with FFA students and dancing in the Folk Festival.

As Deep Fried Ambassador, Ashlee will get the ultimate behind-the-scenes scoop, starting with our pre-Fair media lunch Monday, Oct. 11, where we introduce our media partners to the newest foods, entertainers, information and fun the N.C. State Fair has to offer. She’ll also get great State Fair swag and, of course, tickets to come back every day of the Fair to blog about her experience.

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.
