Premium Book entries are still rolling into the exhibit halls across the fairgrounds. Several departments began accepting pieces on Friday, including the art and photography department. Art entries will be accepted in the Kerr Scott Building until Sunday at 5 p.m. When complete, the exhibit will feature more than 2,500 pieces of work from school art classes, amateurs and professionals.

In the Education Building, the display cases are filling up with canned goods for the food preservation contest, quilts are being dropped off and prepared for hanging, and clothing entries are being placed into position.

You’ll be able to see all the entries in five days when the N.C. State Fair opens its gates.

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.
