Members of the Popcorn Festival of Clay County met Thursday night in City Hall. The committee decided to invite any and all popcorn vendors to participate. No one had been excluded, contrary to rumors. The committee is making plans to install more electrical outlets at Forest Park in the area where the carnival was set up last year. There will be no carnival this year and that space will be used for vendors. A call has been put out for a sound system to be used during the festival, the first weekend in October. A contract is being negotiated with a company that wants to offer helicopter rides during the festival and with a company that wants to offer children's activities.
