Observations About the NC State Fair

October 17, 2011

I went to the NC State Fair today and partook in one of my fine state’s greatest attributes. Here a ten quick observations or things I saw at the fair today.

1. A woman with a rat tail, except instead of just a tail, it was about four inches wide. Maybe a beaver tail?

2. Proof that some people never left the 90s behind and God bless them for it.

3. A goat get stuck in the rails of his pen, then squeeze his way out so he could eat the hay in the adjacent pen.

4. Donkeys that look so depressed with life, you can’t blame them for wanting to bite people (as the sign warned they would do).

5. People in scooters who clearly do not realize that walking pedestrians have the right of way. Oh, you’re on wheels? You are no longer a pedestrian.

6. A pond full of plastic pink flamingoes. (Score one for class, NC.)

7. A Rastafarian banana (which is apparently this year’s popular fair prize).

8. People who clearly found their calling as carnival workers.

9. Mini doughnuts that melt in your mouth and make you wonder why the State Fair can’t be year-round.

10. Proof that airbrush t-shirts are still a thriving industry.

I’m of the opinion that North Carolina has the country’s greatest state fair. Feel free to try and prove me wrong in the comments.

      It is fun! Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos. I was too distracted by the many sites!

    The Wilson County Fair (in middle TN) is known as the region’s best (not sure what the “region” is). We have tractor pulls, a hypnotist, rednecks, Native American exhibits, and a hay bale decorating contest.
