NC Library has online exhibit about fair


    RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The North Carolina State Fair is more than
    two months away, but the State Library is getting people in the
    mood for everything fried with an online exhibit titled “Blue
    Ribbon Memories: Your History of the NC State Fair.”

    The site includes a timeline that allows visitors to browse all
    the fair’s premium lists, which describe how much contestants could
    win for entries such as quilts, jam and pies.

    The site also includes articles, photographs, films, memorabilia
    and other information about the fair.

    North Carolina residents can submit personal stories or
    photographs. Lisa Gregory of the State Library says the memories
    don’t have to be fancy, just true to the sights, sounds and scents
    of the fair.

    The 2011 fair is to be held Oct. 13-23.
