And what a great time to be the tourism director in mount sterling when we've got the biggest festival of the year, october court days.

That's right.

Kicking off tomorrow right here in mount sterling.


And you guys have been so busy.

Okay, first of all, let's talk about what is the october court days and what can people expect?

October court days is kentucky's oldest festival, so it's been around over 200 years.

And so people come from all over the country to downtown mount sterling, hundreds of vendors.

We're talking any kind of food you can imagine, all kinds of things to buy, to collect, to trade.

And then of course we're going to have live music.

That's right, that's right.

And okay, let's talk about some of the activities that you're going to have going on during the festival.

I had a feeling you were going to ask me about a great big trophy i've got sitting here.

That's right.

That's right.

Well, this is one of the activities we're going to... someone's going to walk away with a trophy that stands about as tall as me.

And this is the mount sterling mullet contest.

Now you know what a mullet is, right?


I rocked a mullet back in high school.

I would like to see that.

You really don't.

Nobody wants to see that tracy.

But we're going to have a lot of fun.

So on sunday at 1 o'clock, we're going to have a mount sterling mullet contest.

There's going to be a male division, female division, youth division, and there's going to be an overall winner.

This is the overall winner as well as a hundred dollars in cash and some prizes.

And that's just one of the many activities.

It's a four day fes yeah .

That's on sunday.
