The 64th annual Greene County Fair -- packed as always with local entertainment, a popular carnival, and dozens of exhibits -- ended Saturday.

Fair President Bobby Holt said this year's edition of the fair was a success, although overall attendance was down slightly from last year.

"We're happy with the year," Holt said. "We would have liked to have seen better numbers Saturday and earlier in the week. But we battled rain earlier in the week, and the threat of rain on Saturday."

He added: "We were actually blessed with the weather this week. It was probably the most pleasant weather that I can remember."

A total of 29,217 people visited the county fair this year, down from the 30,972 who came out last year.

Friday proved to be the most popular night of the fair, with attendance totaling 7,582. There were 6,861 people at the fair on Saturday.

"Friday night would have been about our second-highest attendance ever!" Holt said.


The fair's midway was operated by Family Attractions Amusement Company, the carnival company that was at the fair in 2012.

The company brought more rides to the local fair this year, including specality rides, Holt said.

"We got really good comments about the carnival," he said.

Booths and exhibits weren't in short supply either.

"We were basically full with inside vendor space this year," Holt said. "It's been awhile since we could really make that statement."


The fair on Saturday was headlined by Red Roots, a Christian band composed of red-headed triplets, plus day two of the Demolition Derby.

The derby was one of the most-popular events at the fair this year, a well-established tradition, Holt said.

Fairgoers on Saturday also had the chance to hear The Dugger Band, a Greeneville-based Christian group, and the Fabulous Fifties.

The finals of Greeneville's Greatest! also took place on Saturday, with Johnny Sentelle claiming the top prize.
