Summer produce, tomatoes, corn, whatever your favorite garden veggie, it's all so delicious. What could be better than joining your community for a big old farm-to-table dinner to enjoy all of the bounty?

On Saturday, August 3rd, the Muhlenberg County Tourism Commission will host their 2nd "Farm to Fork" Gala. The gala, which will take place at Muhlenberg Historic Paradise Park in Powderly, is about recognizing and celebrating the contributions of agriculture and the importance it plays in their everyday lives and their community.

The gala will feature a special guest and newly crowned Miss Kentucky, Chapel Tininus.

Country Song Titles That Could be Firework Names

Everyone loves a good firework, but some of the names are wild. And since no one in country music has named a track "Whisker Biscuit" or "Husker doos," we put together a list of songs that do exist, but could also double as fireworks.

Is there any that we missed?
