A haiku to immortalize the end of summer:
Monkeys riding dogs
Screams from the blurry, neon lights
Deep fried snickers bars
The Wilson County Fair (thirty miles outside Nashville) wins awards each year for being one of the best fairs in the Country. If the Texas State Fair is THE State Fair, then the Wilson County Fair is THE fair.
Just some of my favorite things are the pig races (where some lucky lady will get herself declared “Pig Queen” for the winning pig – I’m Miss Piggy 2008), chocolate covered bacon on a stick, prize winning biscuits, blue ribbon chickens, outrageously large gourds and pumpkins, Fiddler’s Grove Historical Village (complete with a spectacular dioramas of a funeral and jail), bluegrass bands, rodeos, and a tractor pull.
It’s the perfect outdoor adventure for every honky tonk angel…
