Crisp fall nights, apple cider, sparkling midway lights, people watching. Let’s face it, the fair is a special place. Earlier this year we asked people on social media and those that volunteer or work at the fair just what they think makes the annual event special. Check out the responses below. Did your reason to love the fair make the list? Poster prints of the 150 Reasons to love the North Carolina State Fair will be available at The Nest in the Exposition Center lobby. Get your own 8×10 for $6 or 16×20 for $8.
