In an effort to increase physical activity among adults and youth in our county, the Franklin County Health Department in collaboration with several other community partners, sponsors a program called “The Longest Day of Play” (LDOP). Since 2007 when LDOP first came to our community we have hosted over 5,821 participants which include children, adults and seniors! Numerous activities were made available for all age groups to encourage the incorporation of physical activity in their daily routines.
If your organization, business or community group would like to join us in showcasing the tremendous and varied opportunities to engage in physical activity that are available to the residents here in Franklin County, please contact Debbie Bell at DebbieY.Bell@ky.gov or (502) 564-5559.

WHERE KFC Yum Center
The I Love The 90’s tour will bring you back to the days when MTV actually played music, when the president told you that you could smoke marijuana without inhaling, and a rubber koosh ball was on every kids Christmas list. Featuring performances from Salt n Pepa, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, Rob Base, All 4 One, Kool Moe Dee and Young MC, the tour will come to KFC Yum Center on June 4, 2016.

The 1990s was a vibrant decade marked by multiculturalism and globalization which was enhanced by a piece of game changing technology known then as the world wide web. One of the era’s most successful TV shows, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, dramatically and comedically displayed how hip hop culture left the hood and was spread across the suburbs. Dope, fresh & da bomb became regular vernacular, baggy pants & backwards baseball hats were regular 8th grade uniform and the music of Salt n Pepa, Coolio, Tone Loc & Young MC were taking over top 40 radio.
