NC Sate Fair Visit

Hello Blogging Friends! Our NC State Fair was October 13th -23th .This year's slogan was Love A Fair and I love visiting the fair every year. The following is a Photo Journal of my visit.

Water Fall Wall, Great place to take group pics & meeting up with folks .

This little school bus comes up to kids and teaches them about school bus safety.

Spotted this girl in the crowd trudging along along with this big happy yellow monkey .

This 4-H display was so cute !

There were lots of beautiful cakes , I thought this was cute and very doable .

Very pretty Christmas table using pink, I love pink for Christmas !

Enjoyed this amazing dog show .

One of the street performers .

Night time at the fair !

There is a jingle that is sung on the commercials for our fair(and probably all state fairs ).
The Fair , the Fair , the unforgettable Fair ! I think it is funny to sing but true , the Fair does leave me with happy , fun memories .I hope you enjoyed joining me for a visit to our NC State Fair!

Love & Blessings,
