FANCY FARM – Despite several Democratic no shows, the 136th Fancy Farm Picnic took place on Saturday with a somewhat smaller crowd than usual.
The picnic, which dates back to 1880, is known around the state as the kickoff to the political season in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
However, the picnic is also a festival and fundraiser for St. Jerome Catholic Church and and features kids games, bingo, a truck raffle, as well as 19,000 pounds of pork and mutton which is cooked and sold annually at the event.
Here’s a look back at all of the sights and sounds of Fancy Farm 2016.
