Photo Gallery: Thousands Attend Jay Peanut Festival

October 3, 2010

The 21st Annual Jay Peanut Festival attracted thousands to Jay this weekend.

For a NorthEscambia.com photo gallery from Saturday at the Jay Peanut Festival, click here.

The Peanut Festival featured something fun for everyone including arts and crafts, antiques, inflatable rides, rock climbing wall, pony rides, hay rides, train rides and much more. The Gabbert’s 1930’s Farm Museum was also be open for tours. There was plenty of food too…kettle corn, BBQ, hamburgers, roasted corn, apple dumplings and more.

And, of course, peanuts were the star of the festival, and were will be plenty of green peanuts and boiled peanuts as well as fried, roasted and candied peanuts.

The event is dedicated to the memory of Melissa Caroline Gabbert, who died of cancer in 1990.

    Thanks to the Gabbert family. This is the first time I attended and I will be back next year. The food was good and the farm gave me such a pleasant feeling. The folks were friendly and the weather was GREAT.
