It is our favorite time of year—time for the Sevier County Fair! The lines were a little long within a few minutes of opening on Labor Day 2016.
The previous blog story recommended the Sevierville First United Methodist Church food booth for the best food at the fair. Hope I get to go back before it ends! Remember the Million Dollar pie!
During lunch, there was live music by the Shaun Abbott group. They rocked it. I heard them mention a song released on iTunes and I liked it a lot. Here is a link to their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/shaunabbottmusic/
Craig Mintz and friends from First Baptist Church giving out free balloons to children at the Sevier County Fair.
A lot of balloons! I am looking forward to the FBC Corn Maze, coming soon. Here is some info below so you can mark the date on your calendar. Love a hayride!
It looks like great fun! Must see if my niece and nephews want to come to town to try the FBC Corn Maze.
A local celebrity was spotted at the fair soon after it opened— Big L ! What a beloved and admired man at SCHS. Anyone was lucky to work with Leroy Helton. His son Darren is a good one too! Pictured here with Mrs. Helton.
WATE Channel 6 reporter Mona Nair and cameraman preparing a news segment about the Sevier County Fair and safety in general for traveling fairs. In the spirit of things, Mona took advantage of the face painting booth and was ready to report. Here is a link to the first report.
Check the second video there on the WATE webpage about fair safety because they are reporting from the moving ferris wheel! What a great view of everything!
You can see beauty queens on Labor Day at the fair. They were so poised, pretty, and sweet. Next year, must stay later and see the Fairest of the Fair Pageant too.
There are things that are truly Americana!
And then there was a unique food cart that came from Morristown. Very authentic!
Lots of tempting things you can’t find anywhere else…
This vendor said that fried Oreos were the most popular. 6 for $5?
There were some vendors as well as some free things in the Main Street Market. You can always use a ‘church fan’ in the south!
On the way out, I ran into Farmer Charlie from Farm Bureau. They had announced on the intercom that he would be there and I ran right into him.
A very friendly guy from nearby Knoxville.
No rides for me—I like to watch the young kids enjoy them.
These were just a few of the things we enjoy at the Sevier County Fair while out and about in Sevierville.
See these pictures and more at the Out and About in Sevierville Facebook page. Here is a link.
P.S. Make sure that you go on Saturday at 1:00 to see the Humane Society Dog Show! Too much fun!
