Weekend Update: July 6-8

It's a weekend full of fun for all collectors at the N.C. State Fairgrounds.

If you love antiques and collectibles, this is the weekend to come to the N.C. State Fairgrounds. We’ll be hosting the 62nd Raleigh Antiques Extravaganza in the Graham Building. The show will feature more than 125 exhibitors selling quality antiques and collectibles. Doors are open Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $6.50 per day or $7.50 for a weekend pass.

While you’re there, check out the Raleigh Flea Market. Vendors will be set up in and around the Commercial and Education buildings Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

And, in case you missed it, we’re less than 100 days from the 2012 N.C. State Fair. Sure, the State Fair might be the furthest thing from your mind with triple-digit temperatures. But, for those longing for crisp, October nights and all the fun of the State Fair, you can start planning your trip now at www.ncstatefair.org/2012.

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.
