Casey County Apple Festival
The Casey County Apple Festival began in 1974 and is still going strong today. This popular street festival is held every September in the streets of downtown Liberty. The festival boasts live music, street vendors, pageants, sporting events, and a carnival for the children. You might know it by being the home of the World's Largest Apple Pie! Apples are a big part of our county's history. For many generations, Casey County had 30,000 apple trees, which was about 17% of the state's crop. <a href="http://www.caseycountyapplefestival.org/"><b><u>Learn More</b></u></a>

Lights of Liberty Theater
Lights of Liberty Theater was originally opened as the Kentuckian Theater in May of 1950. The Kentuckian closed its doors in the 1970's and it remained empty until it was reopened in 2013. The theater has been completely renovated, updated with the latest technology and is showing the latest hits on two screens with 3D capability. It has been wonderful to see the theater alive again after all these years! Lights of Liberty also hosts several theater productions and events throughout the year. <a href="http://www.lightsoflibertytheater.com/home.html"><b><u>Learn More</b></u></a>

This 88-acre lake is a wonderful place to go to for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and wildlife viewing. Since combustion propelled watercraft and swimming is not allowed, Lake Liberty is a peaceful place to get away from it all and reconnect with nature. It is open to the public from 6 AM - midnight 7 days a week.
The scenic South Fork Area of the county is home to many Amish and Mennonite communities. Amish businesses in the area offer household goods that you just won't find anywhere else! Please exercise caution while driving through this area as there are many pedestrians and horse drawn buggies traveling the roads as well. <a href="http://www.kyamish.com/p/shopping.html"><b><u>Learn More</b></u></a>
