LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Wildcat Harley-Davidson and The World Chicken Festival are proud to announce “Light Up The Night In London,” an exciting new event, presented by Wildcat Harley-Davidson.

On Friday, Sept. 28 at 10 p.m., the night skies will light up over downtown London and the World Chicken Festival as more than 5,000 firework shells burst into the night with the most elaborate firework show London has ever seen. This 20-minute show will be choreographed to music and will be broadcasted on Oldies 96.7 and relayed to all the stages and the public address system throughout the World Chicken Festival area in downtown London.  

Starting at 5 p.m., the big boom will sound every hour to remind everyone of the show that night.
