Down-Home Folks Celebrate Redneck Ways

PARSONS, W.Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Country bumpkins are lettin’ loose and celebrating their redneck ways at the Hick Festival.

The event brings down-home country folks from all over to Parsons, West Virginia, tomorrow (Aug. 30) through Labor Day (Sep. 1) for knee-slapping games like cross-cut sawing, horseshoe pitching, and a logging contest.

Though festival spokesperson Jeanette Bishoff says many attendees repress their backwoods ways out of shame, most are ready to get down with their hick selves.

She says, “People with a fondness for hicks like to come down and have a good ol’ fashion time. They don’t get offended if you call them hicks either. It’s part of who they are.”

Though many will show up in bib overalls and straw hats to “party it up all night” with tons of square dancing and line dancing, Bishoff assures that the hick habits will be kept to a minimum.

She says, “No one will be grilling possums.”
