PIKEVILLE, Ky. — The second annual Hatfield-McCoy GeoTrail Event will be celebrated Labor Day weekend in Pike County and West Virginia.

The event is a commemoration of the historic feud. It begins Friday, Aug. 30, with the popular Stolen Pig Roast.

The Kentucky Tourism Cabinet says interest in the Hatfield and McCoy feud has significantly increased over the last two years, due in part to the miniseries that aired on the History Channel.

Last year, geocachers from several states visited eastern Kentucky and West Virginia to take part in the event.
