Yeah we’re movin’ on up…

George and Weesie may have moved on up, but we are movin’ on out…to the fairgrounds, that is.

For most of the year, we work downtown at the Ag Department Press Office, beside the N.C. History and Science museums. But for about two and a half magical weeks, we move our entire office out to the fairgrounds to start preparing for Fair events and helping the media find stories. Today is moving day, and we are busy boxing up press kits, media badges, laptop computers, phones, folders, fax machines, printers. . .and the list goes on. And there’s only five of us!

We’re especially excited about being out on the grounds with new pictures, new stories, new interviews and new scoops to post on here. So get your advance tickets, check the blog often and we’ll see you soon!

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.
