Blackey Festival adds new events

The Blackey Day Festival is shaping up to be a real special event. We are adding new events every year.

Last year we opened our Blackey Day Festival on Friday afternoon, and it was such a success we decided to continue opening on Friday afternoons with music, food and fun from 4 to 8 p.m. Oct. 11.

Our Saturday Blackey Day Festival will be from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12.

Wanda Whitehead is having a photography contest. The theme is People, Places and Things. We think it will be fun and interesting. I will write more about it later.

Since we have the new senior citizens community building, we have more room for displays for our photography and our silent auction.

We will have a fireworks display after the festival closes. We had it last year and it was great, so we decided to continue it this year .

We have a few spaces left for craft and food booths if you would want to reserve a booth. You can call me at 606-634-2530 or 606-632- 3777 and I will reserve one for you. A craft booth is $15 and a food booth is $25 for Friday evening and all day Saturday. We ask that you set up on Friday evening. We will have security Friday and Saturday.

Last year we had a large crowd on Friday evening and all day Saturday. What more could you ask for? We have wonderful music, good food, family, friends and beautiful scenery, a place to sit or dance and enjoy.

Blackey Day is such a special festival. No one gets in a rush. You come and stay as long as you like, or all day as I do. But make plans to visit Blackey Day on Oct. 11 in the evening, and all day Saturday, Oc. 12.

We will have entertainment for the whole family with inflatables for the children and all the entertainment for the children is free, and so is all the music. So plan on coming and bringing family and friends to sit under the big tent and enjoy the day.

God bless.
