Central Carolina Fair:
Dropped my one jar of honey off today at the Coliseum pavilion building in Greensboro.
They did provide two tickets to get back into the fair anytime.

Anybody else submitting any?

Spent 4.5 hours talking to people about bees and beekeeping at the bee booth at the NC state fair while my better half worked selling honey for the State Beekeepers Association. Didn't get a good pic but got 4th place in the honey competition.
