Sirens blared through Whitesburg for several hours Friday, but there was no emergency.
Whitesburg Fire Department trucks gave eager kids and their families free rides as part of Kids Day. Letcher sheriff’s deputies said they estimated more than eight thousand visitors this year. Mini-train rides, face painting and entertainment were all part of the festivities, and next year looks to be just as busy.
Kids even had the chance to grab school supplies to prepare for the upcoming year.
