Weekend Update: May 23-25

The fairgrounds are a little quieter than normal this weekend with it being a holiday weekend, but the weather is forecast to be near perfect (low 80s and sunny) to enjoy a beautiful day at the Raleigh Flea Market or to take in one of the other events. The market features hundreds of dealers, craftsmen and booths and is held in the Commercial and Education buildings and outside grounds.

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!
