Sharing is caring

Last week, we announced Love A Fair as the 2011 N.C. State Fair theme. It’s been great to hear from everyone who remembers the first time the theme was used back in the 70s. Thanks for sharing your memories with us.

Honestly, hearing stories from fairgoers is one of the best parts of this job. Sure, we get to test the latest rides and try the newest deep-fried creation, but the best part is hearing from you. We spend so much time planning the Fair each year that we don’t get to enjoy it like everyone else. So, it’s nice when we hear stories of families splitting a funnel cake, children milking their first cow, couples sharing their first kiss on the Ferris wheel and more.

The cool part about the Deep Fried blog, Facebook page and Twitter stream is how they allow us to share behind-the-scenes stories. There are just four more months until the start of the 2011 N.C. State Fair. We can’t wait to share more Fair stories with you, and hopefully you’ll share your Fair stories and pictures with us too.

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.
