   GREENSBORO — Fairs date all the way back to the age of the Romans. With their food, rides and games, fairs have been ingrained in American culture. The Central Carolina Fair, celebrating its 115th year, does a good job encasing everything we like about the fair.
There’s no shortage of things to do. There’s the traditional fair food such as candy apples, funnel cake, and cotton candy to satisfy any sweet tooth. For the thrill seekers, there are several ways to get an adrenaline rush. Rides such as the Century Wheel, Orbiter, Super Shot and Hurricane are enough to give anyone an adrenaline high.
   The Central Carolina Fair also is the place to be if you want to impress your significant other by winning them a stuffed animal through various feats of strength (basketball, darts, etc.). There also is live music, both on a smaller fair stage and in the Greensboro Coliseum’s White Oak Amphitheatre.
The Central Carolina Fair has done a great job upholding a long and strong tradition of excellence in the fair experience. It is a wonderful place for the family to enjoy a night out or for couples to enjoy a date.
The fair will continue from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. today through Friday (Sept. 18-20, 2013); 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 21) and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 22) at the Greensboro Coliseum, 1921 W. Lee St., Greensboro.
