Perhaps the most famous county fair movies are Charlotte's Web and Babe. Well, it is county fair time in North Carolina. As we've been showing all week, Greensboro is enjoying the Central Carolina Fair at the Coliseum. Locals have the opportunity to make memories with friends and loved ones. Above, we see Mrs. Ivey's assembled cast of chili judges. Everybody judging has some experience with food service or with the Cooperative Extension Agency. For sure, they know their chili. Judges were in the process of judging the hot (spicy) chili. They had already awarded the ribbons to the mild entries. People awaiting results sat on the sidelines, literally, gripping the sides of their chairs in anticipation of the results.
You have through this weekend to enjoy the exhibits, rides, games, and the requisite fried foods. Come one, come all. Step right up. What do you think sets a great bowl of chili apart from the mediocre? a good pickle from a bad one? a blue-ribbon rooster from an honorable mention?
