This Saturday the Knifley community will be celebrating its heritage and catching up with old friends.
Revisit Knifley 2014 was imagined after Kathy Tucker, a Knifley resident, was traveling through Columbia and saw several activities going on throughout town.
“I thought, ‘Well, Knifley can do that,’ and that’s where it came from. So I went back into Knifley that morning and went straight back to the restaurant, Olde Town Cafe, and talked to Randy Quinn,” Tucker said. “Everybody I talked to afterward said it sounded like a good idea to them. So a bunch of us have just gotten it together.”
Saturday morning will start out with a pancake breakfast from 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. at the fire department and a 5k walk/run starting at 8 a.m. at Patterson’s Bait.
There will be a pageant at 9 a.m. at the Fire Department along with vendors located throughout downtown Knifley.
Buggy rides, inflatables, basketball, pumpkin and face painting, ring toss and popcorn along with a visit from Air Evac will take place in front of the Olde Town Café.
Historical memorabilia will be available at the Olde Town Café starting at 11 a.m. with a gospel singing at Knifley Brethren in Christ Church across from the fire department.
A concert featuring the Crooked Creek Band and Carousel Stampede will start at 4:30 p.m., followed by a fireworks presentation at dark at Patterson’s Bait.
Knifley is located at the crossroads on Ky. 551 around 12 miles from Columbia.
