Crafters in the Village of Yesteryear were busy Wednesday setting up their displays and booths. The Village, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, features nearly 100 craftsmen and women showcasing traditional crafts.
The Village was not the only place on the State Fairgrounds hopping with activity. Ticket sales at Gate 9 were steady throughout the day. You can still buy advance tickets at walk-up locations and save money on admission and ride tickets. To find a location near you, go to www.ncstatefair.org.
