Photos from the Fair: Great Fair-A-Thon Challenge

Bob and the Showgram's Mike Morse and Subway's Jared Fogle emcee the Great Fair-A-Thon Challenge on the Waterfall Stage Tuesday, Oct. 19.

Over the past several weeks, contestants have been competing in a virtual scavenger hunt as part of Subway’s Great Fair-A-Thon Challenge. They searched for clues on our blog, social media sites and Subway locations for a chance to make it to the semi-final and final rounds of competition at the Fair. After racing around the fairgrounds in a real-life scavenger hunt,  two teams were selected to compete in a final trivia round with Jared Fogle.

Randy and Catherine Edwards of Raleigh won the competition, and will get a free trip to New York City to see Jared compete in the New York City Marathon.

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.
