Original Festival Guide

Displayed below is what is believed to be the orginal Festival Guide published in September, 1975 by the Jaycees. It consisted of 22 total pages and 75 advertisers. Many of the advertisers are still in existence today but others have changed ownership or gone out of business entirely. For example, Barron's Processed Meats is now Jim David Meats but Reod & Gibson Texaco Service, which was located where Marko's is now a restaurant, has gone out of business.
