When two events of this magnitude overlap on the same day, it’s the entertainment death-match equivalent of Highlander, baby — there can be only one. Only one can sell you deep-fried butter and Oreos dipped in batter. Only one can pitch your stomach into your uvula on that crazy ride that resembles an upside-down pirate ship. Only one can scratch your itch for pie-making face-offs, petting zoos and paeans to the might of the yeoman soybean. But the Williamson County Fair in Franklin is almost over, and its last days are the first of the massive Wilson County Fair in Lebanon, the biggest in the state. If you prefer not to jostle with a quarter-million folks for the chance to watch a pig race, we suggest going to the Williamson County event, then hitting Wilson County on a weekday when it’s less crowded. Admission for Wilson County is $7 adults, $5 kids 6-12, and 5 and under free; for Williamson, it’s $6 adults, $3 kids 6-12 and those younger free. (But don’t forget the dough you’ll need for $1 ride tickets and food — funnel cakes don’t grow on trees, y’know.) For tons more info, see williamsoncountyfair.org and wilsoncountyfair.net.
