Many East Tennesseans came out to the Tennessee Valley Fair to have some fun while supporting local causes.
The fair hosted the fundraiser, "Paint the Fair Pink," to raise awareness and money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure in Knoxville. It also helped raise money for "The Love Kitchen," donating one dollar from every "all-you-can-ride" wristband sold at the fair.
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure which raises money for breast cancer patients, research and awareness, among other endeavors. The Love Kitchen provides meals and clothing to the homeless, home-bound and needy.
One of Sunday main events was "Bedazzle Your Bra Contest." People bejeweled their undergarments and paid five dollars to enter the contest.
Another fun event at "Paint the Fair Pink" was "Stomping Out Breast Cancer." At this activity, people of all ages learned how to line dance. They had fun two stepping and boot scootin' down the dance floor.
The Tennessee Valley Fair ends on Sunday, September 16th.
