Fulton's Banana Festival 50 Years Later

It’s been 50 years since Fulton, Kentucky  hosted the first banana festival. This year festival organizers are preparing for what they hope will bring thousands of visitors, and boost morale in a town that's faced some economic hardships recently. Fulton's Ferry Morse Seed Company laid off than 100 employees earlier this year.  Festival organizer Christie Rogers speaks with Chad Lampe about the festival which runs from  Sept 22nd to Sept 29th.
