WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - People from all across the country are in Whitley County for the annual Jeep Jamboree.

This is the 20th year for the event called "Gateway to the Cumberlands."

Nearly 200 people and their Jeeps are in Williamsburg to ride the trails in the surrounding areas.

Friday morning, the line of Jeeps was nearly two miles long!

Organizers say the participants came from 25 states and Canada.

"They're just so complimentary of our area. They talk about the beauty of southeastern Kentucky and it's something for us all to be proud of, not just in Williamsburg," said Mayor Roddy Harrison.

The Jeep Jamboree runs through the weekend. It also includes dinners, bluegrass music concerts, and other events showcasing the region.
