Todd County Community Alliance “Bale Trail”
All around Todd County
The Todd County Community Alliance is sponsoring the first annual “Bale Trail” across Todd County starting September 15th. The Alliance encourages you to “Explore Todd County” and the new Bale Trail is a great way to start your journey.
So what is the "Bale Trail"? Participants around Todd County will use hay and hay bales to create elaborate displays near the roadway. Just a few of the participants already signed up include Crossroads Animal Clinic near Guthrie, Kentucky with their display titled “Straw Creatures Great and Small.” And, Martin Industries in Elkton will create a display titled “Farmer in the Bale.” People will be able to drive around the county, view the displays and explore the beautiful Todd County countryside.
All displays must be completed by September 15th when a map of all the hay bale display locations will be posted at the ExploreToddCounty.com website. Participants are encouraged to keep the displays up until October 31st.
If you have any questions, or are interested in participating in the Bale Trail, please contact Linda Fowler at the Todd County Welcome Center at 270-265-7070.
