Fulton's Banana Festival 50 Years Later
It’s been 50 years since Fulton, Kentucky hosted the first banana festival.

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.
