The October Original


The calendar may have just turned to Spring, but in our office we are thinking giant pumpkins, fresh apples and fireworks on a crisp fall night. Yep, we’re already gearing up for opening day of the 2014 N.C. State Fair.  

When we think of the N.C. State Fair, we think about October, cool weather, leaves falling and harvest time. We think about deep-fried delicacies, livestock shows, giant pumpkins and merry-go-rounds. We call all our friends and have them meet us at the waterfall for a night of music in Dorton Arena and we make priceless memories with our families. These all create a unique experience you can’t find anywhere else…because to us, the N.C. State Fair is The October Original.

We know that each person’s fair experience is unique and one-of-a-kind. Some may come for the food, others for the competitions or the people-watching. Even in our office, we each have our own things that we love about the Fair. So whether it’s the rides, the concerts, the free shows or exhibits, this October we invite you to come out and experience a North Carolina rite of passage and customize your own fair experience.

The gates of the 2014 Fair will open in 203 days – hope to see you there!

About Funhouse

On the blog I go by Fun House (AKA Heather Overton). At the Fair you'll find me checking out the blue ribbon winners or hanging out in Heritage Circle. It would be hard for me to pick a favorite part of the Fair, but I can tell you one thing I hate - leaving it on the last day. I can't wait for opening day!
