    Carry your kid(s) or go get someone else's child and take them to the NC State Fair. You will be amazed at the bravery of the child on certain rides. I did and I never been on a Fairies Wheel! My hero

    Overall was a lot of fun, the only downside: A lot of similar food vendors which made it kinda hard to keep track where you had been. Tried Krispy Kreme Burger & Fried Cookie Dough: Awesome

    Park on the Trinity side of Carter Finley and go in the back entrance to the fair near the horse barns. The lines are shorter there and it's close to the fireworks which you can watch from the car.

    For a place out of the sun where you can sit at a table, eat at the Cary First United Methodist Church booth. Best ham biscuits! Proceeds to church ministries. Staff are lovely church volunteers.

    Incredible 15 minutes of fireworks every night. Beats most July 4th displays! A must see even if not attending the Fair.

    Ride the bus there. It beats the hassle of finding a parking spot and is a lot cheaper than paying up to 20 bucks for a spot.

    If you enter at gate 8, make sure you leave by 9:30 or you can't exit at gate 8 until fireworks end. They began late last night so we waited almost an hour. You can still exit via gate 9.
