Sunfest chair Vincent Sammons explained that any vendors who were at Sunfest last year have until January 1 to apply to be at Sunfest again. Those who do so, will retain their space from last year. He said that people from as far away as West Virginia want to sell their wares in Rising Sun. "We are changing it up with the early applications. We want to get things organized earlier. We want to have all our ducks in a row before it starts," said Sammons.
