If one NC State Fair Deep Fried Ambassador is good, imagine how tasty 3 would be! Introducing the blogging trio “My Fair Ladies.”
Giving you three unique perspectives on the 2011 NC State Fair, we three fabulous ladies will cover the full gamut of food, rides, entertainment, competitions, exhibits and fun “only at the Fair” odd bits. Telling the story through photos, videos and, of course, wildly entertaining words, this gaggle of gals is sure to make everyone want to come out to the Fair.
- The Kamikaze – aka Rebecca Aslaksen - Nothing stops this Fair enthusiast. No food will be left uneaten, no ride unridden. Put a plate before her and she will devour it. Beat: Food & Rides
- Fairly Odd – aka ME! – Fun just got a little funky at the State Fair. Get a backstage look at the music, the best of our state’s produce and livestock and side-shows. Exploring the entertaining, wacky and downright odd parts of the Fair. Beat: Competitions & Entertainment
- The Wrangler – aka Valentina Garcia Gerdes - Armed with sunscreen, family meet-up points and a purse of non-sugary snacks, this mom knows how to make the Fair fun for all ages. Beat: Family Activities & Exhibits
And here is my story of why I want to be a Deep Fried Ambassador:
I love everything classic about the fair. I love the rivalry of producing the best pie. I adore the beaming pride of bringing a blue ribbon hog. I seek the thrill of seeing good, live music at the Coliseum. I happily fork over a few bucks to see a side show oddity. I have a love affair with it all.
As part of the My Fair Ladies blogging trifecta, I want to share all that is timeless about the Fair. My co-bloggers will be covering the food, the rides, and the family fanfare. I want to show the Fair’s roots. I want to dust off what makes the Fair THE fall destination for North Carolina.
I want to dig into the stories of the competitors. I want to shine a light on people who’ve spent hours making the best dang sweet potato dish in the STATE! It’s time to meet the winner of the pygmy goat costume contest. That is real pride in doing good work. These are stories that need to be shared.
And then, well, there are the shows. There are the free shows like the awesome King Action Sports Stunt Show or the just hilarious Steve Brogan and his dummies. Then there are the concerts at Dorothy Arena – sultry Tift Merritt alongside superstars like Dionne Warwick and Kansas. Who wouldn’t want to finish off a tough Friday at the office with a good old Demolition Derby? Me! Who else is with me?!
Come on now, there is some fabulously funky stuff at the Fair! Where else can you pay a couple of bucks to see the world’s smallest horse? Where else can you meet Santa at a frozen banana stand? Well, my friend, it’s all at the Fair.
So why should you pick all three of the My Fair Lady bloggers to be the Deep Fried Ambassadors? It’s because you will get this level of passion and fun for each blog post. We’ll bring the most honest, fun and happy perspective to all things NC State Fair.
There are is just so many wonderful, wacky and fun things to discover at the Fair. As your Deep Fried Ambassador, I will serve it all up with a lot of Southern pride and a little wicked little smile.
