Hummin' and Strummin' At Lake Barkley

Kentucky State Parks and the Kentucky Humanities Council are helping to bring history to life through events like the History, Humor, Hummin' and Strummin' program Friday night at Lake Barkley. As part of the Hummin' and Strummin' event, students from 10 counties were brought to Lake Barkley Friday to see the Kentucky Chautauqua players act out characters from Kentucky's history. Newly appointed Humanities Council Director Ben Chandler says they have a wide variety of Kentuckians for spectators to watch.

Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker says its because of their partnerships with other groups like the Humanities Council that make these events possible.

Walker says events like these help to not only teach children in the area but get them outside and enjoying the state parks.

Hummin' and Strummin' is a free event Friday night from 6 to 10 at Lake Barkley State Resort Park Beach area. Parking is free and food and beverages will be available.
