Take a step back through time during Kentucky Heritage Days and discover what it would have been like to live in Kentucky before electricity and modern conveniences. The festival is filled with wonderful hands-on learning experiences for both children and adults. Here one can witness people dressed in period clothing, cooking on an open fire with a cast iron skillet, and enjoy samples. The many instructional displays are “tied to…fifth and sixth grade curriculum,” says event coordinator, Harold Williams.
I had the privilege to photograph the fifth annual Heritage Days festival. The event includes over 40 booths and fun events. The annual event is free for the public and perfect for the kids. This year’s festival was held on Friday, October 18, and Saturday, the 19th. School buses arrived on field trips early on Friday. This year, the festival featured four actors, including Abraham Lincoln, to tell stories throughout history.
I really enjoyed the Heritage Days Festival and the good company. I would invite you to attend next year and bring the kids!
