Press Release: Georgetown/Scott County Tourism
May 15, 2014
The Georgetown/Scott County Tourism Commission is preparing downtown Georgetown, a Kentucky Treasure, for the arrival of tourists and visitors during the summer season. Vibrant, colorful hanging baskets and bourbon barrels will line Main Street along with the American flag flapping gently in the wind. The City of Georgetown Public Works Department and Steve Fister of Bi-Water Farm & Greenhouse will begin installation of the flowers and flags this week.
As Georgetown/Scott County commemorates Memorial Weekend, it will also play host to the 37th Annual Horsey Hundred, the ultimate trifecta for cycling. Over 2,000 cyclists from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom will be riding the scenic country roads of Scott County and surrounding areas. Georgetown’s own George “Bucky” Sallee, retired bugler at Keeneland for 50 years, will call the cyclists to the post at Georgetown College on May 24, at 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Please be kind and share the road with the Horsey Hundred cyclists.
Join the Georgetown/Scott County Tourism Commission for the kick-off of Party on the Square, May 24th, Saturday evening with The Tim Talbert Project, a high energy do it all band that performs and delivers a variety of music, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The concerts are free and open to the public. Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair!
