HINDMAN, Ky (WYMT) - It is festival season here in the mountains.
Beginning on Thursday, it is time for the Gingerbread Festival in Knott County.
Folks walked through downtown Hindman enjoying food stands, carnival games and rides.
The festival runs through Saturday and has different events each day.
Local Karen Cody said the atmosphere of the event is what makes it so special.
"Probably just more of a family oriented thing, I think. That is what people do most, come and visit with family from out of town and friends and get something different to eat," said Cody.
The festival features live performances, a 5K and several contests.
