It was the 25th annual World Chicken Fest held in London, KY!
Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, is one of the most highly recognized figures in the world. Laurel County, Kentucky, located in the heart of the beautiful Daniel Boone National Forest, is proud to be the home of the Colonel’s first and original restaurant established in the 1940’s. Lee Cummings, co-founder of Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken, also began his career in 1952 with his uncle, Colonel Sanders, in Laurel County.
Sadly, I didn't get any photos of the world's largest skillet - 300 gallons of cooking oil that can cook 600 quarters of chicken at one time, but maybe next year!
Now, onto Part 2!
