Hazard celebrated its Centennial Aug. 2, 1986 and an estimated 2,000 to 2,500 persons visited the community to help celebrate. The event began with a parade in the morning followed by a covered dish noon meal. The afternoon was highlighted by a historical tour lead by Frank and Lorna Aden, along with their daughter Marlene Rasmussen. Frank came to Hazard as a boy in 1906 and recalled the existing businesses and landmarks in the early 1900s when Hazard's businesses were at their peak.
Other afternoon events included an alumni reunion, trail ride, children's games, a free ice cream social, an evening downtown barbecue, and a barn dance.
