North Carolina Mountain State Fair at WNC Agricultural Center

The North Carolina Mountain State Fair kicked off its 17th year last night at the WNC Agricultural Center in Fletcher, NC. It runs from September 10-19 and is the perfect excuse to eat corn dogs and cotton candy and ride the Ferris wheel. Fun fact: According to Wikipedia the original Ferris wheel was designed and constructed by George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. as a landmark for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

You will have to attend the Fair to taste the salty, sugary goodness it offers, but here is a photography sampling of the sites.

    These are fantastic! I wish I could take photos half as well. They are not just a pictoral record, they literally capture moments. They involve the viewer, and transport them to that place and time.
