World Chicken Festival In London Kentucky Sept 26-29th 2013 Thu, 09/19/13 12:01 PM (permalink)
Huge food party set to blow up in Laurel County (London, Kentucky.) London is 15 miles north of Corbin, home of the very first Kentucky Fried Chicken.
The festival is the home of the world's largest chicken frying pan: 10 feet, 6 inches in diameter; 8 inches deep; has a 8 foot handle, and weighs 700 pounds total. This is one big skillet: It requires 300 gallons of cooking oil to fill and can cook 600 quarters of chicken at one time.

    Sounds good. The website stated that one of the contests was called "Doubles cornhole tournament" - while reading it the theme song from the movie Deliverence went through my mind. Besides that the festival sounds like fun !

        Regular Doubles Cornhole you dont have to worry about, but Men's Doubles listen carefully for the words ....  Well watch Deliverance and you can guess which one.

          No professional food vendors allowed? So how can they call it the World Chicken Festival?
