Burgaw Company Provides State Fair Rides

RALEIGH -- A Burgaw company will contribute to the success of the State Fair that starts Friday.

Powers Great American Midways is providing all the rides for the fair for the first time.

State Fair inspectors approved about three-quarters of the event's amusement rides. They expect to have all the rides ready before the gates open on Friday.

Last year, only 42 of the 111 met the state standards for inspectors on the eve of the fair.
