images     Take in a concert, enjoy some thrill rides and then relax in our Asheville resort cabins. The N.C. Mountain State Fair will attract people from all over the region, from families looking for fun, to couples looking for an Asheville romantic getaway. The fair starts today and runs until  Sept. 14th. This showcase for entertainment, agriculture and mountain arts begins on each morning with events as varied as the Heritage Crafts Demonstration, pig racing and acrobats from Kenya. Each night, the Heritage Music Stage will host bluegrass bands and cloggers while the Bojangles Music Stage offers more of a variety, from the Vinyl Brothers Big Band to the bluesy vocals of Leigh Glass. That kind of eclectic schedule is the hallmark of the state fair throughout its nine days. No state fair would be complete without an agriculture competition, and mountain farmers will bring their finest livestock and produce to show off. Many of the competitions, such as wood turning and hand weaving, reflect the historic culture of Western North Carolina. Of course, the timeless midway offers carnival games and rides, as well as classic treats such as cotton candy. Tickets only cost $8 per adult, and this value provides hours of entertainment. Seniors age 65 and older and children ages 6-12 only cost $4. With so many days to choose from, you can easily plan a trip around the state fair. Get in some Asheville trout fishing, or see the sights on the Blue Ridge Parkway. So, book one of Willow Winds’ Asheville luxury cabins and get ready for some good ol’ fashioned fun.     [caption id="attachment_891" align="alignleft" width="300"] Ride at the fair[/caption]
