It’s only FAIR!!! But, really…fried BUTTER?

state fair 2

Yippee! It’s time for the NC State Fair!

It seems that it’ll be a little damp for opening day today but no worries…the sun is sure to come out to make the yearly trip into gluttoney…fried candy bars, fried twinkies, turkey legs, funnel cakes, funnel cakesweet corn, cotton candy, hot dogs…..well worth the digestive misery that’s sure to accompany it! What about all the great shows? Jason Michael Carroll, Third Day, Kellie Pickler and that’s just the first three nights! Then there’s the pig races, tractor pulls and horse shows…Livestock displays, decorated cakes (no cakes by Claire this year), quilts and youth exhibits. One of my personal favorits is the photography and art displays…I could easily spend a few hours in that building. Rides, rides and more rides! Don’t forget the commercial exhibits…sure to include the Sham-Wow and the Ginsu knife! Here’s a state fair map  for you to help plan your attack!

By the way, if you go on a really busy day…consider the park and ride options. Here’s all the parking info you’ll need to make your decision. I live near the Cary park & ride lot and have taken the bus the last few years…for me, it’s worth the cost. Riding in on a full city bus (instead of jockeying for position for that one parking spot that’s about to open up), talking with everyone around you only adds to the anticipation!

So, this year…I think they may have gone a little too far but I see there is actually ‘Fried Butter’ available. What? Really? Hmmmm. But, hey…it’s the fair, right? ENJOY!!!!
