KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - The 72nd annual Daniel Boone Festival was in full swing on Friday, with games, food, and music.

It is the event people in Knox County and surrounding areas look forward to each year. It is also the longest

"We're real proud of our heritage of Daniel Boone passing through Kentucky," said Ron Bowling, Daniel Boon Festival Committee Treasurer.

One thing that is different this year than others is the celebration of 250 since Daniel Boone came through Kentucky.

"We've tried to key that into our Daniel Boone Festival. So, our actual name of the festival this year is 'Boone's Wilderness Walk," said Bowling.

Friday night one of the most important events to the festival will take place, the annual signing of Cane Treaty at the "Festival Feast." The treaty is the longest with the Cherokee that is known, continuing for 72 years.
