HARRODSBURG - Plans for events aimed, in part, at attracting tourists were outlined for members of the Harrodsburg Board of Commissioners on Monday.
Dr. LeMayne Ellis and Joan Huffman, co-chairman of the Beef Festival, told members of the City Commission that plans are under way to hold a second festival this coming summer. The festival replaces both Pioneer Days, which was canceled several years ago, and the Fort Harrod Festival.
"It was a tremendous success," Ellis said. "The concert was the biggest expense and the biggest drawing card." The festival was voted the most innovative and unique festival by a festival organization.
Last year's festival had 19 cook-off teams and Ellis and Huffman said they anticipate between 35 and 40 teams will participate this year.
