Your kids can rattle off their favorite color, their favorite Disney character, their favorite food and their favorite friend.
And our readers here in the Bluegrass also have lots of favorite businesses, services and destinations.
We know that because we asked our readers about their favorites in our second annual Family Favorites Award contest this summer.
We asked for nominations for our survey from the thousands of folks who came to our Summer Camp & Activities Fair in April, and then opened up the nominations to our on-line friends in May.
From those nominations, we put together our second annual Family Favorites on-line survey.
We asked you to choose your favorites in everything from kid-friendly restaurants and birthday party venues to orthodontists and veterinarians.
And, boy, are you opinionated!
More than 6,000 of you logged on during the months of June, July and August and voted for your favorites.
Listed on this page are all the winners. Congratulations to these businesses that you voted as your Family Favorites.
Keep your eyes open for our Family Favorites logo in ads and at local businesses, and you may discover a new favorite for your family.
