I told you I wasn't going away....I'll be volunteering at the NC Democrats booth at the State Fair today from 11:30 am-2:30pm.
Volunteering is the best way to go to the State fair. I always try to find a volunteer opportunity at the fair. It gives you a built-in connection to other people at the fair, and you get in free. I just wish volunteers got a break on the price of the bus ride to the Fairgrounds. $4 round trip is a little steep for a ride that has to fight the same traffic as everyone else. It's still the the best way to get out there.
