The ribbon and the cake have been cut and the 50th National Farm Machinery Show is officially underway.
Joining officials from the Kentucky State Fair Board to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the country’s largest indoor farm show were Kentucky Lt. Governor Crit Luallen, and the daughter of former governor Ned Breathitt who cut the ribbon to begin the first NFMS in 1966. Some of the 50 original exhibitors who were there at that first show were also recognized during the ribbon cutting.
