This Kentucky Tradition Is Almost Two Centuries Old And You Won’t Want To Miss It

Today, the Tater Day Festival has grown into a long-standing tradition, one that the town of Benton and surrounding areas look forward to all year long. The festival is a days-long celebration and one that may be worth adding to your Kentucky bucket list.
