Peanut Festival Draws Record Crowd

The 23rd Annual Jay Peanut Festival had record crowds.  With over 100 vendors, the Peanut Festival had everything you could imagine.  From cotton candy and hotdogs to jewelry made from forks (Southern Bling), this festival has it all.  The festival continues on Sunday, October 7 from 9 am to 6 pm.  There are pony rides, wagon rides, bubble rides and even rides to and from your car (provided by EREC).

And THE PEANUT Festival would not be complete without peanuts.  You can get peanut brittle from the Jay Historical Society, boiled peanuts from the Volunteer Fire Department and green peanuts from Holland Farms.

Many local artists displayed their work. Wreaths made by Barbara Bauldree to portraits by Loren Miller.  Goat Milk Soap from Frisco City to Jewelry from Fairhope, AL.

Parking was free near the Gabbert Farm and on the street but for only a $4 donation to the Keith Rowland Memorial Scholarship Fund you could park right next to the festival.
