Despite a delayed reaction Tuesday night, Robert Fugate walked away the big winner in the Great Giveaway at the Wilson County Fair.

Fugate, of Lebanon, looked through his more than 70 tickets before he realized he'd won. Fairest of the Fair Mikeyla Taylor drew Fugate's ticket first.

Among the cars, trucks, ATVs and other vehicles up for grabs, Fugate chose the John Deere tractor.

With the Great Giveaway given away, the fair turns its attention to the younger generations Thursday with the theme “Harvest the Fun with Generations to Come – ‘Bee’utiful for All.”

Among the highlights of the day’s events, riders in kindergarten through eighth grade will compete in the Tennessee Junior Rodeo Competition at 7:30 p.m. In addition, the Doll Parade will continue at 6 p.m., featuring children ages 4-6.

Other events for the day will include the Old Time Spelling Bee Competition, the Battery Power Ride Toy Race, the Tennessee Central Region 4-H Outdoor Meat Cookery Competition and the Read and Win, School Spirit Jam.

Admission for adults is $7, for children ages 6-12 is $5 and for children ages 5 and under is free.

The fair will draw to a close for the evening at 10 p.m. with the nightly fireworks show.
