Applegate said that through the years the focus of the festival moved away from the kids. But this year many new activities have been added for their benefit. “This festival is free to everyone,” he continued. “And the kids are really going to enjoy the ‘Kids Rodeo.’ “It will include events like stick horse races, pedal tractor competitions and ‘Seek-n-Find’ where kids will dig through

piles of straw to find great prizes. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Applegate added that this years fireworks display will also be better than ever. The fireworks is held behind the post office in Ripley. “We invite everyone out to enjoy great entertainment,” he added, “and take part in all the family fun.”
