FALL IN FLEMING...An idea to promote tourism for the fall season in Fleming County started a few years ago with the Great Scarecrow Roundup where businesses, churches, and even home-owners displayed scarecrows as part of a contest.  That idea was taken a step further this year with something called Barns, Bridges and Banners with the scarecrows still very much a part of that.  Fleming County is called the Covered Bridge Capital of Kentucky with three covered bridges still remaining in the county.
