The NC State Fair would like to retain the top 3 pumpkins and watermelons for a small walk through display during fair week as we look forward to 2021. Seeds can be recovered by one of us and sent back to the grower or the pumpkin/watermelon can be picked up when the display comes down. Though the fair will not be in session there are junior livestock events happening during the week and it’s anticipated a few Fair food trucks will be in operation along with a small walk through display.
