Music is still being discussed and various artists have been contacted to perform throughout the day.
There will be no Zombie races as there is not enough time or volunteers to have a successful one, according to Chamber President Lisa Conley. It was tabled until next year and was discussed to maybe involve a high school group to help host it.
Vendors are still being accepted and approximately half of the available spaces are already gone. Food vendors are no longer being accepted due to the number who have already responded.
The committee will meet again on Monday, Sept. 9 at 6 p.m. at the Regional Kentucky Works Office at 333 Warrior Drive in Olive Hill. The meeting is open to the public.
