FAIR: Biggest opening weekend yet

Franklin Home Page news reports Preliminary midway reports indicate the 8th annual Williamson County Fair’s opening to be as good as, or better, than the seven previous opening weekends.

Life on the Farm has been pretty sweet since the ribbon was cut Friday opening the Williamson County Fair, fair chairman Rogers Anderson reported on Sunday. Preliminary midway reports indicate this to be as good as, or better, than the seven previous opening weekends.

“We continue to be excited about the number of fair visitors who take time to come and see what our volunteers have prepared for their enjoyment.”

Sunday’s Senior Day – which included free admission for those 65 and older — once again had capacity crowds for a ticketed lunch and bingo hosted by HealthSpring. 

School Spirit Day is Thursday, when visitors wearing their favorite school spirit shirt are admitted free (professional sport teams does not apply). The fair’s last day, Saturday, Aug. 11, is  Patriot Day, with free admission for active and retired veterans.

The popular fair pageants took place Sunday and quickly got off schedule, causing the Fairest of the Fair winner to be crowned at close to 10:30 p.m.
