Wilson County Fair officials want everyone to know carnival rides will open Friday at 5 p.m. on time and on schedule. 

Some Facebook posts Thursday and Friday appear to have claimed otherwise, said Fair Manager Helen McPeak.

“The rides are open for sure,” she said.

She said about four people called her and said they read the rides weren’t open Friday night for the start of the fair.  She became concerned that rumor spread.

“I’m not sure where it all got started, but we think it was a Facebook post,” she said. “I don’t have a clue.”

She said she was glad the fair’s Facebook was popular, and she planned to post a statement the rumors were false.
