Animals at the Fair
Monday, September 22, 2008
The Wilson County Fair ran Tuesday through Sunday, bringing at its peak Saturday more than 9,000 patrons and fair workers to the fairgrounds off U.S. 301 S., Allgood said.Altogether, about 20,000 paid visitors attended the fair. That was the number of paid fairgoers last year, Allgood said.Allgood, who has worked with the fair for seven years, said Saturday was particularly busy, adding that 45 percent of the fair's patrons usually come out on Saturdays, making good weather that day all the more important.Allgood said this year's advance ticket sales for the fair suffered, likely because of higher gas prices, but he said that overall attendance is better than it was five years ago, when it dipped to a low point.But, he said, attendance overall is declining.
