The North Carolina State Fair is quickly approaching, and this year, fairgoers have a ton of new attractions to enjoy.
The state fair has introduced two shows for those wanting an adrenaline rush from something other than a ride.
Kachunga, an American Bushman from Florida, will wrestle alligators in front of audiences with his bare hands.
The other act is the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show, which will feature skills like axe-throwing and chainsaw carving.
These lumberjacks are not just here for entertainment; they will also spread messages about issues affecting North Carolina’s forests. This show is daily and will be held close to the N.C. Forest Service area of the fair.
For any animal lovers, the fair is producing the Canine Stars Stunt dog show. In this event, different breeds of dogs and mixes will perform tricks like dock diving, freestyle frisbee, high jumping and dog agility.
The press release also included a list of returning popular events and new performers at these events, all with ties to North Carolina.
Fire departments from all around North Carolina will once again host the Fire Safety Show. This show will portray fire safety information for younger visitors.
Returning acts also include the Chinese Imperial Acrobats, the Circle C Racing Pigs and Pirates of the Columbian Caribbean.
