Rainy Day at the NC State Fair

We decided to head to the State Fair on Monday to have some fun and let the kids ride a few rides. We knew it would be raining, but it was the only day we could go so we bundled up and made the best of it.  :)

This guy was hilarious! He did an magic show, but also had some really funny tricks that the kids (and adults) really thought were funny. Everyone loved this part except my little boy who was completely freaked out.  :)

He got almost completely inside the balloon here.  The kids loved it!

This was my older daughter’s favorite ‘ride’.  She got to run and slide around in a huge hamster-wheel-bubble on water.

My younger daughter’s favorite part of the fair was the clown show. She was picked to be his assistant and was on stage helping with all sorts of funny tricks. At the end she got to keep her clown nose and is so proud of it.  :)

My little boy loved the vehicle rides – cars, trains, buses, etc. He woke up this morning asking to go on the train again.

We had a great time at the NC State Fair.  It’s open through Sunday, so if you’re in the area be sure to go!

  2. How fun!! We had our fair here a few weeks ago – Abby’s favorite thing of all of it was the petting zoo! They have all these cages of goats, chickens, pigs, cows… And the chickens have open top cages, just little fences around them, so they just jump right out and wander around sometimes. Abby CHASED the heck out of this one poor rooster, cracked me up :) LOVE your pics here – looks like you had a great time.
