Though Hazard Daze has been discontinued in recent past, it provided many great memories thanks to the leadership of Bob & Maryann McCauley & many other volunteers. The following highlights are from the last Hazard Daze held in 2002.


HAZARD DAZE - August 10, 2002
Sponsored by the Hazard Volunteer Fire Dept.

Hazard Daze: That time of year when the number of horses in town rival our resident population; and hundreds of out of town guests are welcomed to our community. Great weather, great hospitality, great food, and a lot of hard work and planning by our community leaders and volunteers contributed to another successful Hazard Daze celebration. To our volunteers we dedicate this section. Thanks y'all for the wonderful events.
