The annual Got to Be NC Festival runs this Friday through Sunday (more about that tomorrow!). I wanted to point out a great deal for families who plan on going to the N.C. State Fair in the fall.
During the festival, they'll be selling $5 adult admission tickets to the fair. The limit is six tickets per customer. You can get them at the ticket booth near the waterfall. They are available on a first come, first served basis.
Ticket booth hours are noon to 8 p.m., Friday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday. The adult ticket price at the gate last year was $10, so this is a great savings.
The festival at the state fairgrounds in west Raleigh is a kind of mini fair with rides, games, demonstrations and displays, but admission and parking are free!
