I remember when the Apple Festival was the best part of the year in Clay. Now it is more like a big joke, especially with the entertainment. We need some younger, new board members to make it fun and interesting like it used to be, when people like Adam Tucker and Satchel Brown came here. Get up to date and current new stuff, and stop with the old boring typical Clay stuff. Anybody else agree????

These vendors come in to the town with their high prices and unsanitary trailers selling bad food and various junk items clog up the streets,trash up the streets and just flat out rob the poor people of Clay and on top of all of that you have to put up with all of fighting and arguring of the stupid idiots that come out in the evening.We need less vendors and more security on the streets

True. However, they need to make it more exciting so that it keeps the attention off the stupid people and on some good entertainment. They need to pep it up from the old boring usual stuff. Keep the stupid trash talking of families off here. This is an actual post meant for suggestions, not ignorant people getting on here slamming people they don't like. Make constructive suggestions or keep your mouth shut and stay off here. Your trash talking makes you as bad as the people you are talking about, stupid.

The apple festival is the same every year. Same rides, same food, same vendors, same events. They really just need to change it up some. Any suggestions on how this could be done?

More exciting updated rides and they really need to lower the prices of the food and drinks not to mention the price of the things they sale in the tents I mean it's rediculouse. But that's only a suggestion.

Maybe we all thought it was fun because we were younger! I think they should bring back the fair, the funny thing is, when you ask the question as to why don't we have the fair anymore, no one will answer you.

The reason that we don't have the fair is the people who run this town, say they don't want our money going to people out of town, if you can get an answer.

Funny thing, I think now that Braxton and Nicholas get all are money! Think about it, where is the closest sporting goods store, where is the closest mcdonalds, where is the closest shoe store, where is the cheapest grocery store, where is the closest fair, where is the cheapest clothing store, where is the closest steak house, where is there a 24 hour resturant? Sure as hell not in Clay. Clay needs to find ways to bring people back home, not push them away!

Real bright people we got running things!

Please vote when you have a chance, and ask what are you going to do for Clay, not who are you and who do you know.

Hold the fair at the same time as the apple festival, pay for real bands like Nicholas & Braxton do. Hold homecoming at the sametime, and work with schools to play Spencer, Braxton, or Nicholas at the time, so that more people will come home!

Hold it more towards the first of the month in October, so that people in Clay will have more to spend, knowing that Clay County is one of the highest welfare counties in the state, and people get their checks at the first of the month.

Why does it have to be around a certain date?

Small things to make a big difference!

The Apple festival use to be held around the first of the month until the Sizemores got it changed so the store would not lose money. They believed that the people would not save there money but spend it locally (at their store) before the festival started. since most was on a fixed income they risk the chance of losing money. It is a crock that Clay can not have something worth while.

Clay has enough space for everyone, if you see someone you do not like go the other way. The town will be packed and you probably will not run into them unless your looking.

Why not make suggestions after you spend a year volunteering to plan the event. What have you done to make Clay better?

If everyone wants the Apple Festival to be better then go to the festevial meetings and volunteer to help get things done instead of putting the ones that do help down. We do not have a lot of local vendors because they have to have libality insurance and most people can't afford it for just the weekend because its to expensive. Most of the venders who are there do this all summer and already have the insurance.

I was born in Clay County and was planning a trip home to conicide with the apple festival while enjoying the natural beauty of autumn. But after reading the adverse comments concerning the festival I wonder if perhaps it might be a mistake to include it on my agenda. I really wanted my son to appreciate and love his heritage as much as I do. As the season approaches I will check back to this site to read any progress that is posted. Good luck to those who work so hard.
