Dixie Classic Fair

7 posts in this topic

This past week, I had received some complimentary tickets to the Dixie Classic Fair. Usually I don't go to the fair when it comes to town, because of the lack of new attractions/rides and the overall quality that has gone straight down the crapshoot IMO. Though, I decided to try it this year and see if it met my expectations. Honestly, it's not that bad, but it could be a lot better. I didn't take my tripod with me when I was photographing last night, due to the bulkiness of it. Here are the photos I got last night:

Well, the Dixie Classic Fair is now over again for another year. Fox 8 reported this morning that attendance this year set a new record! Over 371,000 people came and enjoyed the fair for the 125th anniversary! Way to Go Dixie Classic! :thumbsup:

I've been going to the Dixie Classic Fair every year of my life and it's something I look forward to every year and I go twice many years including this year.

I went to Raleigh's State Fair in 2001 and let's just say it was a bad experience. Dixie Classic is the best fair I've ever been to.

I also have an old video tape from 1994 of WFMY News 2's Crossin' Carolina at the Fair which was hosted by Arlo Lassen. It's a nice bit of WFMY nostalgia and Dixie Classic nostalgia.

I'll try to upload some of my fair pictures from this year as soon as possible, but I don't think they're as good as the ones on here.

Matt's Carnival Warehouse, an internet clearing house for carnivals, exhibitions, etc; has released the 50 biggest fairs in North America for 2007. The Dixie Classic Fair made it's inaugural appearance on this list in position 50, thanks to a 17% increase in attendance this year. Let's hope the Dixie Classic can keep up the growth!
