Hay Dayz needs community supportBy Staff Reports Published 1:00am Saturday, September 3, 2011
This year, the city will come together to commemorate Christmas on the River for the 40th time. Think about that. It was 40 years ago that Demopolis citizens came together to make a big idea into a big success and an indispensable tradition. It ismore than a little bit ironic that the 40th anniversary of Christmas on the River could be the last year of Hay Dayz if community members cannot find it in themselves to rally around the event much like the forefathers of COTR did.
Currently, the contests have no contestants, the carnival people have backed out and event is in trouble.
Hay Dayz is a fall festival designed to celebrate the culture of the small town South. Demopolis is the small town South. Register for a contest. Volunteer to help. Make Hay Dayz a successful tradition.
