We went to the North Carolina State Fair on Thursday with my sister and her husband. It was Food Hunger Relief Day and that's the day you bring four cans of Food Lion food and get in free. All the canned food benefits the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC.
The Award Winning Blue Ribbon Pumpkin this year happened to weigh 846 pounds! That's one big pumpkin!
Galen, my dearest hubby, entered his "John Deere" wooden marble chaser toy in the Hobbies and Crafts Competition. He won 2nd prize! A red ribbon.
And, our daughter, Jen, entered the Web Design Competion and won 3rd prize!
Here's Galen, below, and you can see the green marble chaser in the background with the red ribbon.
I loved seeing all the colorful produce. The large watermelon below weighed over 200 pounds.
And what would a fair be without all that delicious fair food...we had yummy Italian sausages, french fries, funnel cakes, apple fritters, and homemade ice cream.
I wanted to bring one of these little pot bellied pigs home with me.
