If you guys know me, I’m a sucker for a carnival! The 150th anniversary of the NC State Fair was this past week in Raleigh. Unfortunately, Bobby and I were so busy that we only got to go after work on night. MAN! That was a mistake! The NC State Fair was awesome!!! Next year we’ll have to take a full day off work so we can eat all the fair food and view all the barn animals.
First of all, it was my first time at a state fair. Growing up we always went to the county fair. This place was like a theme park! It was MASSIVE!
I heard the food at the fair was to die for, so we walked around for a while scouting out the perfect spot for dinner. Bobby ordered a Italian sausage sub and I got an egg roll with fries. Nothing crazy, but we were starving and we didn’t want to stand in line.
When I was younger I LOVED riding the rides. As I get older, I start to appreciate the crafts, plants, and produce. We didn’t have a lot of time, so we only got to see a few displays.
After walking around (about 5 miles) and getting lost…we finally decided to head home. While we were waiting for the shuttle, we caught the fireworks!
Next year I’m definitely going to take a day off work so I can experience the whole fair!
