The 130th Anderson County Fair’s fourth night of fun begins at 5 pm Thursday when the gates open on the “Best Six Days of Summer.”
Tonight is Ray Varner Ford Night at the Fair.
This evening’s Living Heritage Demonstrations will be Quilting & Sewing, and nightly favorites like the Little Ponderosa Petting Zoo and the Tractor Parade of Power will be going on, plus the twice-nightly giveaways of $100 in cash, sponsored by Rusty Wallace Chevrolet, will take place at 7 and 9 pm.
Featured events tonight are Night #1 of the Truck Pull, gospel singing with Heaven’s Heirs and more live music with Knoxville’s the Chillbillies.
Gates at 5 pm and will close at 10 pm nightly. Admission is $5 per person, and a season pass that gets you in to the Fair every night is $20. Admission for children under six years old is absolutely free every night. Pay one price of $20 to get an armband that will let you enjoy all of the James Gang’s carnival rides as well, which open at 6 pm each night.
