Fair Takes Top Honors
The North Carolina Association of Agricultural Fairs (NCAOAF) honored the fair with the 2013 media award for its extended efforts through advertising, social media, and traditional media outlets. The fairs compete against other fair of similar size. This year, in the large fair category, it was Robeson County that walked away with the award.
"It's a great honor for us," said Allen Faircloth, President of the Robeson Regional Agricultural Fair. "We have several fair board members who work during the year to prepare our advertising, make sure sponsors are recognized, and see to it that everyone knows about our fair." Faircloth said the media award is a true team award for the volunteers who make up the fair board.
To be selected a scrapbook style notebook showing examples of different types of media is submitted to the NCAOAF. This year the fair included newspaper clippings, examples of promotional items, sponsor signs, and both print and broadcast advertisements. "One of the growing areas in this category is social media," Faircloth added. "We have not only a web site that we are very proud of, but also an active voice through Facebook, Twitter, Shutterfly, and new this year Pinterest. It's amazing the comments and questions we field through our social media and it has really allowed us to connect in new ways with our fair goers."
It's All in the Thrill of the Ride
The Robeson County Fair Board members are pleased to announce that Wade Shows will be offering the Amusements for the fourth straight year as part of the Robeson County Fair. During this partnership our fair goers have had the opportunity to enjoy new and different spectacular rides, and improved midway, and amenities galore. Frank Zaitshik, owner of Wade Shows, said "Fairgoers will have a lot to look forward to as we bring the best rides to the Robeson County Fair." Allen Faircloth, President of the Robeson County Fair said, "our partnership with Wade Shows have allowed our patrons to enjoy some of the best rides and wonderful family atmosphere of any fair in the state. We are looking forward to our continued working relationship for many years to come."
One of the updates for 2014 that fair patrons can enjoy before the fair starts is our addition of a Pinterest page. You can find all kinds of ideas for home exhibit entries, tips on gardening, fun fair foods, and much more.
