There's a competition for almost everything at the N.C. State Fair, so why not Legos. After all, Legos kind of rule.
And now, two local boys -- Trey Hester of Cary and Nathan Wilson of Apex -- also rule with blue ribbons and Best of Show ribbons for their inspired Lego creations.
Trey, who is 10 years old, picked Krispy Kreme for his North Carolina-themed project (for youths aged 10-18) because of a connection both he and the company share: they were both born in the Camel City.
"I was born in Winston-Salem and we like Krispy Kreme a lot," he said. "So I just decided to do it."
The model doughnut store, complete with customers, a delivery truck and a drive-thru -- not to mention the iconic "Hot Now" Krispy Kreme sign -- is modeled after both the Winston-Salem and Raleigh stores.
