Celebration was the theme in Frankfort Saturday as people partied to mark the 100th anniversary of the Kentucky Capitol.
Saturday's festivities began at 7 a.m. and ran all day. The festival included a Kentucky Proud Farmer's Market, antique car show, Kentucky Crafted artisans, live music performances, food vendors, displays by local businesses and free hot-air balloon rides.
The Governor's Mansion was open for tours, as well as the Capitol, which featured new murals in the rotunda. The murals, revealed at a gala on Friday, include themes of nature, industry, progress and culture. The state-financed restoration of the dome and rotunda cost $460,000. Marion and Terry Forcht of Corbin donated $225,000 to create and install the murals, which had been part of the original plans for the building.
