Crazy Days provide lots of options

Merchants had their items on the sidewalks in front of their stores early Thursday morning as the Spencer Chamber of Commerce began its three-day Crazy Days celebration in town. Downtown businesses took advantage of the opportunity to market their items in the open sun and shoppers took advantage. Thursday night, the public was treated to Thanks With Franks, a way for the retailers and service providers to say thanks to the local base by serving up opportunities. Offering a health option as well, Blue Zones Demonstration Site volunteers served fruit kabobs as well. Crazy Days continue through Saturday. A few blocks over, the second week of Mainstreet Market, at Clay County Courthouse square, continued with a vendors selling fresh produce, food and artisans works.

I heard from a few ppl they liked it. Biggest complaint I heard was there wasn't all the toppings as in years past. The hot dogs are FREE!!! If people are going to complain about free food, I wouldn't blame mainstreet for not doing it anymore. It gets too crowded for my taste, that is why I dont attend it.
