image for "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" Causes Patrons' Spontaneous Chase Sequence at County Fair
Some stood around taking pop-shots. All just a bit of fun you understand.

Chaos broke out at a recent Tennessee local county fair when a performing band played the banjo favorite "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" and the patrons began chasing each other around in vehicles and even on foot.

"It was surreal. Everybody was running or driving in some type of chase sequence like out of one of those "Cannonball Run" movies. I guess it was brought on by that music." said David Goldberg who was visiting from Secaucus, NJ. He added that "It was pretty weird. One guy was even drinking out of a jug with three X's on it. I've never really even seen such a thing."

The chase sequence began when the performing band "The Smith Boys" played "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" as their closing number. Patrons jumped into their pick up trucks and flatbeds and began chasing each other around the grounds like there was some kind of spell cast on them. Some traveled on foot as well. A few patrons even thought they saw women who had originally entered dressed modestly mysteriously wearing short shorts and tied off halter tops.

By the time the song ended, most of the chase participants came to a stop with a comically befuddled look on their faces. Sleepy hound dogs appeared in the backs of the trucks.

One patron remarked "I just don't know what came over me. I'm a corporate lawyer from Memphis."
