In the old days, the first Friday night crowd at the Celebration would number approximately 12,000 folks.

On Friday night,  August 28,  the Celebration crowd would not have filled the Calsonic Arena.

The Citizens BOYCOTT of the Big Lick Animal Cruelty at the 2015 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration is taking a toll.

Nephew Eugene says that the protection being provided the Protestors by the Shelbyville Police Department commanded by Chief Jan Phillips is exemplary.

The Protests will resume again on Saturday evening.

Too much is at stake not to protest.
