Progress Photo: Six Days Away

With more than 100 rides spread across the fairgrounds, it’s no wonder workers are already assembling some of your favorites. We expect to see even more rides go up this weekend. We’ll also see more entries being dropped off for the Arts and Photography, Handicrafts and Hobbies, and other competitions.

We’ll be around, so look for more updates from the Deep Fried Crew on the blog, Facebook and Twitter. In the meantime, make sure to save time and money by purchasing your State Fair tickets in advance. You can buy your tickets online at or get them at nine area locations.

And remember, even if you wait until the last minute you can still take advantage of discounted prices. Advance sale discounts will still be available all day Thursday, Oct. 11.

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.
