If festivals are your cup of tea then you will really appreciate attending a Lebanon festival. The festivals are normally held every year and there are some which you simply can't miss. When attending any of these festivals you should consider checking into a Lebanon Bed and Breakfast as an affordable and comfortable way of staying in the area.
Marion County Ham Days
Marion County Ham Days are held in September every year and are very popular with the local community and tourists alike. Although the event is mainly about ham, there is also a lot of free entertainment available. A motorcycle show, parades and contests will keep both children and adults entertained. The food available is delicious and well worth the trip in its own right. The other free attractions are a nice added bonus.
Jets over Kentucky
The Jets over Kentucky festival is one of the most popular ones in the whole state. This is held in July and is always a great tourist attraction. The event normally only lasts a week, which is why you will need to plan your trip carefully if you intend to visit it. This is one of the most successful and longest running jet festivals in the country and this alone makes it worth visiting. Children and adults will really enjoy watching the jets fly overhead. If you do want to visit the Jets over Kentucky event then you will need to book your Lebanon Inn as early as possible.
