Merrie Go Round is the midway alter-ego of Andrea Ashby, who has officially spent 219 days during the past 21 years at the N.C. State Fair. That's perfect attendance in case you were wondering.
In addition to promoting the Fair, looking for untold Fair stories and working on various special events, I also spend a great deal of time roaming the grounds taking photos for the Website and State Fair publications. I like to keep my eyes and ears posted for the unusual and different things that make the State Fair such a great celebration of North Carolina people, traditions and history. I look forward to sharing with you the things I come across on my journey.
