Big Bone Lick to Be Featured on KET's "Kentucky Life"

Big Bone Lick Historic State Site will be featured on KET's Kentucky Life.

The program will highlight the Boone County destination on Saturday, Feb. 2 at 8 p.m., and then again on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 4 p.m. and then on KET 2 on Monday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m.

In the segment, Kentucky Life explores the history of mammoth bones found in Big Bone Lick and how they eventually ended up at Monticello, the home of President Thomas Jefferson.

The episode will also feature visits to Powell County where adventurer Joe Bowen discusses his two turns as Olympic torch bearer and his lifetime of adventuring across America on bicycles and stilts - raising thousands of dollars for charity along the way.

Fulton, Ky.'s Banana Festival will also be featured in a story about the annual celebration that pats tribute to the city's one-time reputation as the Banana Capital of the World when it was a prominent railway distribution point for fruit in the late nineteenth century.
