State Fair!

Saturday, I headed home to Raleigh and spent the day at the North Carolina State Fair. It was perfect fall weather, and my annual pilgrimage for fried dough was a success.

Gallery (47 images) is over here, if you want the full effect. Wish I could figure out how to put more than 15 photos to a page. It's kind of silly to have those last two pics hanging out on a fourth page by themselves.

I think you've most definitely captured the essence of the Fair. Cool!

Wow. From a photography standpoint, that's the best compliment I could imagine receiving! That was my goal. Thanks!

Did you and/or the girls get to go this year?

The girls and I didn't go this year. :-(

Though, last year was enough to last for quite a while!

Great pics. It makes me really want to go next year. I have never been.

Thanks! It is definitely an experience, crazy with sights, sounds and smells that combine to create something completely magical. I will never forget the first time my Dad took me as a little girl.

I saw on the news yesterday that this year's attendance was a record-breaker--close to 900,000 people. I highly recommend going on Thursdays if you can swing it; the crowds are lighter and it's canned food day--you can get in for a donation of 4 cans to the Food Bank, instead of the regular $7 adult admission.

I'll keep that in mind and try to work my schedule next year so that it permits going to the State Fair and spending a night or two in Raleigh.
