We will open tonight after having 9 inches of rain in 3 days. grounds drain well as we put lots of money into underground drains. J&J Amusements on the midway. Chance Giant wheel, Mulligaan wheel, Sartori Kami, Sartori 1001, tilt, SKYDIVER, Orbiter, Bertazzon Swings, Super Loops, KMG Fireball, Thunderbolt themed as Rock n Roll, Orient spiral coaster, Paratrooper, Midway of Utica with Wisdom Himi, Eli wheel, Scooters, slide. Plenty of kiddie rides. Might have missed some. Cliff Hanger and Scorpion racked out back as they have not been cleared to operate in NC yet due to accidents in other states on similiar pieces, not the ones here. Joey Shelton, Bob Ash, Jack Burback, Brian Coker, B&B Concessions are a few of the concessionaires. Our website is not completely updated due to our webmaster being sick but check it out at www.robesoncountyfair.com  Tonight is can night with free admission with 5 cans of food for the food bank.

remember that one well there rrshow. pavement runs thru there now. also a new grandstand behind that area with all galvanized and aluminum seating 3000. add two zeros to that and that is the investment we made in that area this year.

forgot the hurricane in the lineup. headless woman, biggest rat and largest reptile in here also.

fairly good weekend. over 12,000on Saturday. splash downs seeing a lot of action. the hand wax joint seemed to be doing fairly well. crowd around it every time I walked by. most food vendors seemed to be happy with the weekend.

Forgot to mention we have one of the water balls/bubbles. seemed to be doing good as well as the mechanical bull. bungy jumps were getting some action.
