The North Carolina State Fair is held every October in Raleigh, North Carolina. It's always a fun time to go and see, and eat! We usually go on "Hunger Relief Day" which gets you in free with the donation of five non perishable food donations. All the donations benefit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. Our daughter, Jen, works for the Food Bank (Digital Media & Database Mgr), and she's always there on Hunger Relief Day.
We entered one of our marble rollers this year in the Toy Division, but, unfortunately, no ribbon. That's ok, we still had a great time.
Here are some photos of the fair. The gardens are my favorite!
Our blue marble roller, you can see in the background. The winner this year was a wooden train.
That would be me, and our daughter, Jen, having a pimento and cheese BLT at the "La Farm Bakery".
