Where Every Family Matters

New Venue & Info for Fair’s Kid Pageants

Sign your child up for one of the pageants taking place next month through the Williamson County Fair!

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?! Or at least the fairest of the fair?
    The Williamson County Fair takes place Aug. 4 – 12 at the Ag Center (4215 Long Lane, Franklin), but this year, the kids’ pageants take place in a different location — the Performing Arts Center at Academy Park (112 Everbright Ave., Franklin). Before the pageants on August 6, all entrants must attend a modeling workshop at Academy Park on Saturday, Aug. 5 from 3 – 5 p.m.

Then On to the Show!

    At the pageant, winners of all divisions will receive a crown and a sash. In addition — and new this year — the fair will award a $250 savings bond to winners of the Petite Miss, Little Miss, Junior Miss, Teen Miss and Fairest of the Fair contests. Baby contestants are not eligible for the savings bond.
    To enter your child in a contest, fill out the appropriate APPLICATIONS, FORMS & INFO for your child and send it with a $25 entry fee to Williamson County Fair Pageants, P.O. Box 329, Franklin, TN 37065. Entries MUST be postmarked on or before August 2.
    Next, make plans for the Aug. 5 – 6 weekend! A $3 per person donation will be suggested at the doors on Aug. 6, to benefit Waves, Inc., Early Childhood Education Program.
