|Hats off to the Wilson County Fair from Ireland!|
James and Louise Gamble, newlyweds from Northern Ireland, the county of Down, were on the second leg of their honeymoon trip in Nashville when they saw a publication advertising the Wilson County Fair. James, dairy farmer, and Louise, a teacher in their home country, stopped in Lebanon on Tuesday August 16, while en route to the Smokies to complete their honeymoon trip.
Upon arrival at the fairgrounds they initially met Ruth Correll, UT Agricultural Extension Service Director. She brought them to the office where they were welcomed by Hale Moss and Kristina McKee. The couple received souvenir Wilson County Fair T-shirts and the royal treatment while on a guided tour with Johnny Knowles of the entire Fair. They loved the ferris wheel and delicious fair food, and left Lebanon with good memories—proving once again Wilson County really is “The Place To Be!”
