I've been a resident of New York state since 1996, but I've never been to the New York State Fair.
When I lived in North Carolina, though, I used to go to the NC State Fair every chance I got.
NC State Fairgrounds
Acculturated to it at an early age; we only lived a few miles from the Fairgrounds.
It's time for the North Carolina State Fair again.
