For some, the first day of summer conjures relaxing images of swimming pools, backyard barbecues and family vacations. For us, the first day of summer is a “friendly” reminder that we have less than four months (115 days) to tell you about the great things happening at the 2010 N.C. State Fair. The sweat on our brows is from the summer heat, we promise. Speaking of heat, the Deep Fried blog will be sizzling this summer with more behind-the-scenes videos, interviews, entertainment updates, ticket information and contests. So sit back, relax and celebrate what’s great at the N.C. State Fair.
