NC State Fair 2012

Another successful run at the North Carolina State Fair -we saw the Old Grist Mill, the odd tree girl, had some snacks (see the list after the jump), and generally enjoyed all the fair has to offer. Note – all the fair has to offer is strange at times and includes things that my internal censor wouldn’t allow here.

Enjoy the pictures and feel free to comment on your favorite moment at the fair. Mine? If someone asks you what happened here in 1876 the right answer might be NOTHING. That’s right – NOTHING happened here in 1876 – won me a free loaf of french bread.
