BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - It’s the Hay Bale Trail’s seventh year back in Logan County, and community members are getting more and more creative.

“We have saw some of the most amazing creations in the last seven years. It’s hard to believe some people are as creative as they are. We’ve had the Disney castle, we’ve had the ‘UP’ house,” said the executive director of Logan County tourism, Dee Dee Brown.

Brown says last year they had hay bales lined up for up to 65 miles and included locations in Russellville, Adairville, Auburn and Lewisburg.

“The furthest one from Russellville took about 30 minutes to get there, so they’re all over the place,” said Brown.

One father-son duo competed for their fifth year.

The father, Joey Eaton, explained that his wife was, and has always been, the brains behind the operation. He and his son help her to complete the vision and then they make it into a reality on real hay bales.

“She sends me to the store to buy the spray paint and I execute the vision, so that’s kind of the idea,” Eaton said.

This year, Joey and his son, Vincent Eaton, made their hay bales specific to Adairville Elementary School’s theme this year for all parents and students to see as they drive in.

“In our school, our theme this year is peace love learn, and so we did like the peace sign for sign language, the love sign and the learn sign was a little bit too complicated to spray paint so we just did a book,” said Vincent Eaton.

On Oct. 14 the winners will be announced after a Facebook vote.
