Revisit Knifley is back for a second year with new activities and a chance to reunite with old friends.
“We want families to come and have fun without having to spend a lot of money,” says Tammy Humphress, one of several coordinators for this year’s event.
Revisit Knifley gets underway Friday night with an outdoor concert featuring the gospel group Driven. The “Cutest Punkin in the Patch Pageant” is also slated for Friday night.
Saturday promises a full day for event participants, with a pancake breakfast and a 5k run kicking off the morning. All new this year are the antique tractor show and a classic car show.
Inflatables will now include furry animals for kids to ride. The inflatables, furry animals and petting zoo are all free for children to enjoy.
A bluegrass band has also been added, with music kicking off at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Vendors from the community and neighboring counties will have a variety of items for sale. The Old Towne Cafe will serve food and food vendors will offer a choice of barbecue, sandwiches and baked goods. Food will be available Friday evening and Saturday.
The celebration will conclude Saturday night with Crooked Creek Band in concert and with fireworks.
This year all events are centered around the former Knifley Grade Center, now the Olde Town Cafe, unless the schedule notes otherwise.
“There will also be free transportation for people who may have to park away from the school,” Humphress noted.
Revisit Knifley was the brainchild of Kathy Tucker and other locals who want to see the people of the community come together, reminisce about the past and enjoy the present. An expanded “historical room” inside the cafe is sure to help bring back great memories for everyone in attendance.
The only cost involved will be for any purchases from vendors, for food and for two carnival games. Everything else is free.
