— Individuals interested in working at this year's North Carolina State Fair can apply for a number of jobs through the Employment Security Commission, the commission said Monday.

The fair opens Oct. 13 and runs through Oct. 23.

"The State Fair can be an excellent opportunity for those individuals seeking part-time work," ESC chairman Lynn R. Holmes said in a statement. "The State Fair provides a great way to enjoy a fun and entertaining work environment while at the same time making some money."

Applicants will need to apply through their local ESC office in person and online with NC Job Connector. There are ESC offices in Raleigh, Cary and Durham open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday though Friday.

The primary need for workers will be setting up and taking down rides. However, there will be a need for casual labor, food service and retail workers. Job openings will be filled in the week leading up to the fair opening.
