This weekend we took a trip to visit the Greensboro fire monitoring team. We followed them to the North Carolina State fair where we enjoying a cornucopia of fried and roasted foods that included BBQ, hot dogs, corn dogs, gyros, cotton candy, sausage, funnel cakes, muffins, elephant ears, snow cones, ice cream, pies of all types, roasted turkey legs, and still much more. After filling ourselves with this cornucopia of culinary gastronomic delicacies, we headed over to the pig races. We watched pigs, ducks, and goats race for treats.
Other sites we saw while at the fair included many award-winning farm animals and produce. There was also a tent filled with prize winning potatoes and honey. The final event we attended was a shooting competition and a wondrous display of horse equitation. We finished the night going out to eat and sitting around a warm fire discussing the sights we had seen that day.
