CBC at the Fair

CBC at the Fair

Thanks to fantastic weather, the 1998 North Carolina State Fair exceeded everyone’s expectations with a record setting attendance of over 779,000 visitors. And to those working the CBC booth, it seems like most came through our tent.

Everyone agrees it was a great success, and most giveaways were distributed before Sunday’s close. And while there were some slow times, overall the pace was fast, the food was good (too good), and the days long. Now employees have 11 more months to rest up for next year.
