Knox Harvest Festival Committee Meets


A committee will be formed to help plan this year’s Knox Harvest Days Festival.

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers told WKVI News that 13 people attended a planning meeting Wednesday morning at Knox City Hall. They are exploring other dates to hold the festival. One of the possible dates is Sept. 19 and 20. The festival could be held in the downtown area, but no final decisions were made during this meeting.

Mayor Chambers said that a parade and a singing contest patterned after the popular American Idol show are just two ideas that were discussed Wednesday. No details have been finalized.

The committee will meet again on Wednesday, March 11 at 10:30 a.m. at Knox City Hall. Anyone interested in volunteering to be part of the planning committee are welcome to attend the meeting.
