Rusty Nail, the Main Stage for Downtown Days, up in short order
Experienced City Street Department workers, ACRJ Class D Facility laborers, are getting better, making sacrifice of downtown businesses for Downtown Days less and less each year.

The Rusty Nail, which makes an annual appearance every year for Downtown Days Events was virtually complete yesterday, Wednesday, October 11, 2017, at 10amCT, according to Donnie Rowe, Street Superintendent for the City of Columba, KY, in an interview on the Public Square.
With that done, several parking spaces in the Fourth Quadrant of the Public Square were opened for regular commerce for the professional offices along the strip .
Work on the assembly of the modular structure started Monday morning, October 11. Rowe said he wondered if the festival organizers and those who attend could ever guess what a feat had been accomplished this year.
That feat is improving each year the City of Columbia employees, veteran of many stage raisings remember past mobilizations, past obstacles to anticipate and avoid, and remember the little tricks of the trade it took to make a complex set of modules go together as easily as legos and tinker toys.
The City street employees, Rowe and Tim Smith and Roger Coffey, get a huge hand up with the able-and-willing, eager-to-help, quick-to-learn Adair County Regional Jail Class D Facility residents.
Altogether, there are nine men who work the bigger part of three days complete the stage-raising, not counting supervisory leadership from the jail.
"We have to thank Dennis Selby," Superintendent Rowe said of the Class D Facility Coordinator. "He's a big reason why the work goes so well."
"And, of course we appreciate Joey White," he said of the Adair County Regional Jailer.
Rowe said he hopes Downtown Days knows what a savings the festival gets from the the City's in kind contribution and the contribution of the Class D work. "It makes a big difference," he said.
Downtown Days get started Friday October 13, at 4pmCT, when vendor booths open at 4pmCT, followed by Kiddie Train Rides at 5pmCT, and then at 6pmCT, events on the Main Stage at the Rusty Nail begin with the Cumberland Thunder Gospel group on stage, followed by the Stampede Family Band Rock 'n Roll performance at 6pmCT. On the other side of the Square, the Beauty Pageant will be underway at 6pmCT.
