I am for ending this thing. Nothing but a traffic problem, and brings out the rednecks, drunks and dope heads. Crime in town goes way up that week.
It's not worth it. So question is, if a petition was floated to put a stop to this yearly gathering of meth heads and welfare warriors, would you sign it? A lot of town people I have spoken with say they would.
yep

And why do people line up at those nasty booths to buy that nasty food, prepared in very unsanitary conditions.
I have seen people working those things take money, blow their nose then slap together a burger, all without ever washing their hands. Do what you want, but that's not for me.

I wouldn't care. I only go to laugh at the welfare warriors. Some of the conversations you overhear. Priceless!

If you dont like it than dont go, its that simple. But why try and take something from people that do like it?? And if I remember correctly I see more than just welfare people out in town spending their money at the booths. Its a shame that people around here want to get rid of anything that people might actually enjoy. Sure a small percentage of people might go a little over board, but isnt that what we have law enforcement for? Instead of getting rid of DB maybe it needs to be improved upon and bring more tourists to our little community.

What if all of our rednecks quit spending any money in Barbourville at all and go somewhere else? If you don't like the Daniel Boone Festival and live in town leave that week and go somewhere else. You won't be missed at all you go and be the redneck you are somewhere else OK?

daniel boone was a deadbeat dad, left his family repeated times . almost all his kids were either killed by indians or died from lack of medical attention.He would be in prison for flagrant non support in todays world. Why does he deserve a festival ? Especially in a county that he no more than barely passed threw while abandoning his family.

If you don't like, here's an idea, don't go!!! Or better yet go some place where there's no rednecks or crime. Where would you go? They're everywhere!!!!

Last year was my final time ever going to the Daniel Boone Festival ! It is run by a bunch of smartass bastards that think they own Barbourville ! They fight with each other over everything ! Hell one of them Dixon's got mad and told them if they didn't remove the channel 4 camera off his building that he would go up there and throw it in the street !Now I like our mayor because he tries to do what he can for people ! But guy's like Alvin Jordan pure prick !! I will never attend another festival here and I hope that everyone else would boycott it this year ! Maybe they would wise up and change some members and have a nice environment to take a family ! Spread the word and see if we can stay home ,save money, and force some changes to our Daniel Boone Festival next year !! Thank You !

I think the DBF is a form of child abuse. Welfare parents spend/waste every dime they have during this week, then the kids starve the rest of the month, while their dope head parents then go out and rob working people blind to support their habit. I say end it, where's the petition ill sign it!

I must agree with you 100%, Daniel Boone would have went to jail today for what he did to his family. He left his wife and kids for years at a time, like to starve them to death. While he was screwing all them Indian Women heck I have walked through gaps in this mountains and no one even knows me. The truth about ole Dan just has not ever been told and another thing he was just 5'6 and they said he was big man. He never even brought his family to this great hunting ground they have blown Old Dan out of proportion. But that is the truth, now if they want to have a festival that is fine it is a tradition and it's been around for over 50 years and I don't think he drove a fire truck or a motorcycle or even a corvette do you. If you are going to celebrate the real pioneers Stop the BS and get back to basics and let the people walk or ride a mule or horse or a wagon bring in some old timers and at night have some entertainment for the young folks but mix it up and have a little fun because that is what these people are looking for it's like a big family reunion for a lot of people. Good Luck and this is my opinion.

I think you got it all right. There are families that travel from different states to enjoy the DBF with grand kids. It's a family reunion for many families.
