ColorFall 2008 Debuts Sept. 24
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The 2008 edition of the popular Kentucky ColorFall program features a web site that provides a wealth of information about autumn in the bluegrass state. From a map that tracks foliage color stages to six video clips that highlight fall’s beauty, the ColorFall site is a guide to all things autumn around the commonwealth.
Now in its 23rd year, ColorFall is designed to aid the public’s enjoyment and the media’s coverage of autumn in Kentucky. Produced by the state’s Departments of Travel and Parks, ColorFall utilizes 17 spotters throughout the commonwealth who report the weekly progress of the changes in color that grace the Kentucky landscape from the Appalachians to the western lakes region. The web site goes live Wednesday Sept. 24.
On the ColorFall web site at www.kentuckytourism.com/colorfall, you can access a photo library with downloadable images, a weekly listing of festivals and events, and a link to trails in Kentucky that provide opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.
The Travel web site (www.kentuckytourism.com) provides events information year-round. Travel consultants also are available every weekday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET to answer questions about events and foliage stages. Contact them at 800-225-TRIP (225-8747).
Media questions should be directed to Marge Bateman, ColorFall coordinator with the travel department, at 502-564-4930 ext. 150 or email@example.com. At the parks department, Carey Tichenor can answer technical questions about specific trees and their foliage at 502-564-2172 ext. 246 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
