One would never have guessed such a small community could pull off such a show.

By Patty Bunch

My heart was warmed yesterday at the number of native Knifley folk who showed up to revisit Knifley. I visited with Abell, Stayton, Warren, Lee, Watson, Spires, Giles, Quinn, and so many more who were born and raised in Knifley as I was and my three sisters, and my Brother, Paul Wayne Dixon.

The festival was bigger and better this year than ever before.

One would never have guessed such a small community could pull off such a show.

There were beautiful old cars and trucks , vintage tractors that looked like they had just rolled out of the factory, good food of all kinds, crafts and lots of other vendors selling their wares on the grounds of the school building now occupied by the Emmaus of Campbellsville.

Fireworks were set off at dark which were second to none I have ever seen.

Plans are being made already for the event next year.

One doesn't have to be from Knifley to enjoy this festival.

Make yourself a carryover note for your calendar for next year to come out to Knifley next September for a weekend of family fun. --Patty Bunch
