Why in the hell do you have a festival in the middle of the Summer when it is 110 degrees outside? Why not just have the fireworks display and move the festival to the fall of the year?
How about actually having something to do at the festival besides buying overpriced shaved ice and stale funnel cakes?
How about actually opening the venue to bands of all genre rather than the same old crap each year and the entire day of gospel music, WTH?
The vendors offer junk that you can find at any given fleamarket, which too is overpriced.
I think someone needs to rethink this festival and upgrade it, the only thing that sucks worse than it is the Aragon BBQ.
its not flea market stuff . It's art. If you don't like it stay at home . I happen to enjoy and appreciate others art

Just ask them what Nashville had to say a few years back. No one in the band had any talent or knew music. Sent them home packing:)))) and for staying home, hadn't been to Rockmart in years and don't plan on ever coming back. Jealous of a retarded I mean retired Rockmart cop and a Aragon cop, now that's just plain funny right there. kirby you have to be from Aragon!

I ordered something from a woman last year that I never got but then saw her mugshot! Glad I hadn't paid her or else she probably would have done something illegal with the check!

Talent??? Are you for real??? You don't get out of Rockmart much do you??? Because if you did , you'd know what real talent is. I can assure you that nobody is jealous of those two "OLD" fools!!! I would use a different word that starts with a "T" to describe them.....it would be "TERRIBLE" not talent!!!

Yep , I guess when you're as "old" as them, it would be considered talent not to fall off of the stage!!!

Most of you folks just can't be pleased, can you? And, how much time and effort have you put forth to better the Homepsun Festival? Are you just sitting back, waiting on someone else to "fix it"? If you want change, if you want betterment, get up off of your duff and get involved! One other thing -- Frank Hilburn and Wayne Sanders may be "the same old music", but they have dedicated their lives to helping others in need with their music, particularly right there in Polk County. They have done this for YEARS! You may be growing tired of their music, but please remember their passion for the community, and their willingness to use their talents not just to entertain, but also to serve humankind. Thanks and God bless you, Frankie and Wayne!

Not as hot as it should have been.
Not as wet as it could have been.
Fireworks always good.
Money taken in not as high as I would have liked.
Be glad when the economy bounces back.
Nobody buys extras when they can't afford the regular things.
See you next year!

I wish they would build a stage, just to use at the festival. So you can see the little ones in dance and stuff.It was really hard to see them with everyone pushing you out of the way!

There seemed to be a lot more things for the kids to do this year, but it was expensive, with each ride costing about 4-5 bucks each, with three children, I spent $50.00 pretty quick. The crafts, and entertainment were about the same as usual.

Refreshing to see a positive post among these pathetic folks sitting around with nothing to occupy their minds other than lurking for the next one to bash. I came into this site with a positive attitude, but I'm leaving disgusted and ashamed to have been so naive. Bash me losers, but fortunately I won't be around to see your asinine comments. Great post Native Son!!

I agree that it's rather ugly and mean-spirited! These people have feelings, too, and have not been accused of offending you, have they? Just because you don't like their music doesn't mean you have to mock them. If other groups aren't ALLOWED to play then maybe the public needs to speak up to the chamber - isn't it their event. We have great local talent, amateur and professional. I, too, hate watching events there because you can't see anything .. and those girls devote hours to learning those dances and deserve to dance on a flat surface out of the rain!!!

Could the chamber please think about publishing a listing of events on flyers and posters - or mailing them out to every resident?
