The sights, the sounds and the smells of the N.C. State Fair midway.

It’s been years since I’ve enjoyed the guilty pleasure of walking down the midway at the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh.  It is a stroll with sound effects.  The deep engine whine from the tractor-pull.  The shrieks each time the “Surf’s Up!” ride hits the stomach-churning crest.  The howls as the free-fall ride hits terminal velocity.

My dad and I were  searching for something much more dangerous, though,  than a death-defying  ride.  We wanted to find the ultimate in artery-clogging cholesterol.
