NC State Fair

I would like to go to the fair and view it through the eyes of a senior citizen, which is how some places now classify me. What is there to do for someone who may think s/he’s “too old” to go to the fair? I hope to see George Jones in concert this year. I’d like to see if there are any gentle rides I’d enjoy. I would like to find out what happens if someone older gets in the fair and then becomes very tired. What accommodations are there? I know what happens when a child is lost, and thank you very much for finding him! Even after all these years, I remember the terror of losing a young child at the fair.
I’m writing this blog in hopes of being chosen as a Deep Fried Ambassador to the Fair this year. I saw an ad online for blog writers to audition with a blog about the NC State Fair. If chosen, I would go every day and take pictures with my digital camera and write captions and anecdotes about all I see and do. I would be a representative of the Baby Boomer generation. Lord knows there’s enough of us to keep the fair hopping for a long, long time.
The most memorable time I went to the State Fair, my three children were much younger and I was able to unload us all right at the front of the fair. In making a U Turn to go back because I passed the entrance the first time, I had a wreck, which totaled my car. I swear nothing was coming when I looked. I was probably right because according to the police report, the truck that hit us was going 115 mph. His excuse was that he was late to a class. I assume it wasn’t on safe driving. But anyway, the policeman offered to drive us where we wanted to go. Well, looking at my children who had talked about nothing but the fair all week, and knowing I would not have a way to get them to it if we didn’t go NOW, I decided we might as well complete our state fair visit. He dropped us off, and I suggested that we enjoy ourselves. No one was hurt, and we had gotten where we were headed with an excellent parking spot – wherever that tow truck was towing the car to.

Even with those conditions, we had a wonderful time. I don’t think I’ve ever had anything but a wonderful time at the State Fair.
I began going in high school when the class went on a field trip. I was with two other girls and it was my first time at the fair. I was delighted! After that I went every year that I was able to get to it. Moving to Raleigh and living there 14 years helped with that.
I have many pictures of my children at the fair. The times when they were younger were the best. I enjoyed the calm rides that I rode with them. As they got older, I stood and waved at them as they careened by.
Senior Citizens Day is Tuesday, October 18 at the Fair this year. I’m not quite that old, but I would like to see what fun activities are available every day for the Baby Boomer Crowd. I hope I’m chosen as a Deep Fried Ambassador. There’s just something “right” about msplayful at the NC State Fair!
