As you know, this was the first year the N.C. State Fair has ventured out into the exciting worlds of Facebook and MySpace. We love adding new friends every day and hearing everything you love about the Fair. The two pages have been really successful and we’ve gotten to talk with people we may not have ever heard from otherwise.
We’d love to keep both pages growing and show you our thanks as well. Enter our 1,000 Friends Contest! As of right now, we have 686 friends on Facebook, and 402 on MySpace. If either profile can reach 1,000 friends, we will enter all of our friends on that social networking site into a drawing for 10 State Fair prize packs. And these aren’t just any prize packs. You would be winning a day at the Fair for two people, complete with entrance tickets, a Midway ride book, State Fair t-shirt, and lots of other Fair stuff good for any day of the Fair.
Facebook friends, you don’t have that far to go. MySpace-ers, get crackin’! The deadline for this contest is Oct. 10, the Friday before the Fair kicks off. If you’re a member of both communities, double your odds to win and help both sites reach 1,000! Tell your friends to add us, suggest friends for us (that counts too!), and get those numbers up. It could mean a free day at the Fair for you and a friend!
