Your Chance to Win: 1,000 Friends Contest


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!

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.
