Boats, brass, and Brazilian rum. The Boyle County episode of Downstream will highlight some of central Kentucky’s little-known treasures including the historic town of Danville and the Dix River which forms Herrington Lake, home to Kentucky’s first reservoir that powers not only the surrounding areas through hydroelectricity, but ignites the hearts of boaters, kayakers, and personal watercraft enthusiasts.
Along the way you’ll hear and see the spectacle that is the Great American Brass Band Festival, visit the Blue Rook Distillery and sample some regional cuisine and a “smoked” Old-Fashioned at Copper and Oak.
So, grab your favorite cocktail, turn on some bluegrass, and enjoy the beauty of central Kentucky.
