To people who are asking…
1) This didn’t occur at The NC State Fair. That is happening right now in Raleigh. The fair in question was the NC Mountain State Fair, which was held in Fletcher, NC in September.
2) It was a hot tub sales display. People were not getting into hot tubs at the fair.
At a lot of fairs, various retailers pay for space to drum up businesses from fair-goers.
It’s pretty common to see displays put on by car dealerships, farm equipment dealers, and companies that sell things like replacement windows, leaf/gutter guards, etc.
“The fair took place between Sept. 6 and 15, and state health officials said the majority of people who got sick walked by hot tubs at the Davis Event Center during the second half of the fair.”
How does this work? How does the water get inoculated with the bacteria? Someone came by and coughed near the tub water?
North Carolina’s hottest club is “Pillboi’s Broken Hot Tub.”
Previously stored in Jacksonville’s Macho Man Randy Savage Non-International Airport, this swinger’s wack shack has everything: Legionella pneumophila, Blake Bortles and jalapeño poppers.
Hot Tub Death Machine
I went to my first [Virginia] State fair this year.
I can’t picture anywhere at the fair where a hot tub would have seemed appropriate.
Are the state fairs just one state over really that different?
