Opening Weekend at the Mountain State Fair

It had been some time since we had visited a fair. So, we hopped in the car for a road trip to the Mountain State Fair on its opening weekend in Fletcher, North Carolina. We aren't carnival ride people so about half of what was available we weren't interested in. But, everything else kept us occupied for several hours. There were shows, and animals, and vehicles, and stuff for sale, and of course lots of food! What else could you want in a fair? We had a good time and we said we will have to go again. Hopefully it won't take as long to get back for the next time.
