Up in the sky

We know some of the best photographs from the Fair come from you. That’s why we recently announced a new photography feature for all our social media friends on Facebook.  To participate, just upload your past N.C. State Fair photos to our fan page. We’ll pick a few of our favorites leading up to the Fair such as this one from Chari Cutshall.

The Vertigo attracted a lot of attention at last year’s Fair from ride enthusiasts looking for the latest thrill and photographers looking for a great shot. It was one of the most-photographed rides, next to the Ferris wheel, at the Fair. We chose Chari’s photo because it captures the size of the towering swing and the whimsical quality of an overcast October day at the Fair.

For being selected as a deep-fried photographer, Chari will receive some sweet N.C. State Fair swag. If you would like to be part of the promotion, share your photos with us on Facebook.

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.
