Posted June 22, 2020 4:25 p.m. EDT

With record-high temperatures at the NC State Fair Wednesday, most people were buying ice cream, drinks and slushies. We did happen to capture photos of a few fried foods, though, as well some turkey legs and the largest gummy fish you've ever seen.

— You can get a taste of the North Carolina State Fair without leaving your car this weekend.

The North Carolina State Fair will be hosting Drive-Thru Fair Food Days Friday through Sunday (June 26-28) and the following weekend (July 3-5). The events will run noon to 6 p.m. Sales will be cash only.

Drivers should enter the fairgrounds parking area off of Trinity Road. Orders will be placed from your car and servers will come to you. People are asked to remain in their vehicles to maintain social distancing.

This is the menu:

  • Funnel Cake - $6
  • Deep Fried Oreos - $5
  • Deep Fried Snickers - $5
  • Fresh Squeezed Lemonade - $4
  • Bottled Water - $2
  • Roasted Corn - $5
  • Handcut French fries - $5
  • Cotton Candy - $5
  • Edible Gourmet Cookie Dough - Cup $5, Quart $15
  • Corn Dog - $5
  • Dole Whip Cup - $5
  • Dole Whip Float - $7
  • Smoothie Pineapple - $10
  • Smoothie Cup (flavors: pina colada, strawberry, peach)- $5

The North Carolina State Fair is planned for Oct. 15-25 at the N.C. State Fairgrounds. The Got to Be NC Festival, a precursor to the fair held each May, was canceled this year due to the coronavirus.
