August 19, 2008 – Wilson County Fair attendance broke records again with 21,731 visitors on a Monday; 3,138 more than last year's totals and trumping 2004's numbers by 896.
Adding Monday's totals, attendance numbers for the 2008 Fair now reach 206,791, 3,075 greater than 2004's.
Monday wasn't only a good night for the fair, Gerald Phillips of Lebanon held the winning ticket for the $3,000 dollar giveaway, due to no winners of the $1,000 giveaway Saturday and Sunday nights.
"He had the third tickets called," said Wilson County Promotions Treasurer Randall Clemmons.
"Another great day at the Wilson County Fair, we are expecting another record night on Tuesday," said Clemmons. "We will have the Ford truck giveaway, the Lebanon Clowns baseball game, the dog show in the new arena, go-kart races and the doll parade for visitors to attend."
