Next years Festival theme will be...Natural Gas Festival.

Will still have some of the main players from friends of coal but with friends of natural gas items to sell.

I heard, so take it for what it's worth...I heard that the mayor did not want to have the festival this year, but the comissioners voted against her. So, it might end after this year. I have not been to the festival in probably 3 years. We passed by last night on the way to the football game and it was not crowded at all. This was about 6:30 and you would expect a big crowd at that time on a Friday evening.

If the county and city continue to be run as they are now with only a few families allowed to make a dollar then the county and city will have tumble weeds rolling down the street!

The people made Hazard. Main street was a great place to go and spend the day at one time Shopping, socializing.Eat drink and be merry.The old timers would whittle,trade knives,and tell stories in front of the court house.It was common practice for a person to bring a guitar or a banjo and play and sing songs on the street corner around taxi alley.The restaurants were fully packed people every where.The pictures of the empty streets we see today are hauntingly sad to the ones of us who remember the REAL Hazard.Tumble weeds would be an improvement.

We might eventually have to change the name to the Blue-Gold festival since Natural gas is now king!. See, this area does produce some Natural gas, and the color of gas is blue. Since the Coal is out as a major fuel in this country we need to change the name Black Gold Festival to Blue Gold Festival!!!

no the mayor left the city broke when he died! the city is wanting county waist mangment to pick up the trash to cut back cost! and there is also the rumor that they are gonna raise the water rate once all the water lines get put in place. the blackgold festival just puts them in more over the red zone!but it is true!
