Hey Y’ from the Rhea County Fair Grounds: Happy 10th Birthday to the Fair
August 8, 2017
Evensville, TN — The Rhea County Fair continues through Saturday, after big opening on Tuesday. I hope everyone is ready for an amazing week at the fair! They have an spectacular line up for you. Opening ceremony was Tuesday at 5 pm. I don’t know about you, but hopping on the back of an antique tractor and riding around the fair grounds is one of the high lights of the week for me, so far. Now, I know that some of you are laughing just a little, and thinking “man this writer is country.” Yes, it is true I am. I am proud of it! If riding on the back of a tractor is not your thing, I have a few suggestions. Come see their amazing animal judging in the big barn, or shop 30 of the most amazing shopping vendors.
The Fair has jewelry, clothing (LuLaRoe) hand made ceramics, blankets, face-painting, and so much more! Thursday there is a pageant for the Fairest of the Fair Senior ladies. These women are classy, talented, and all around amazing! Everyone should come out and support the ladies.
On Wednesday night there is a gospel singing on the stage at the fair grounds. I don’t know about you, but I sure do love a good singin’. While you are enjoying the vendors, animal, pageants, and tractors, stop by the Master Gardner building located behind the big red barn. They are having amazing exhibits and a garden making class. I was able to take a moment to go inside and find out about world pollinators. I had no idea how intricate the world of insects and plants truly are. Well, I guess I better sign off and go back over to the fair and enjoy more of the festivities, but before I do I wan to remind you to stop by the silent auction building, and place your bid on one or more of these wonderful items from the fair vendors. The auction ends Saturday at 6 pm. Handmade blankets, jewelry, pottery, and pillows are just a sample of what is available for bidding.
There is a children’s play area with lots of things for the children to do, just west of the vendor pavilions. Swings, sand pits, sawdust pits, slides and many more fun things for the youngsters.
Can’t wait to see y’all at the Fair.
