Organizers of an Abraham Lincoln celebration near his Kentucky birthplace say the government shutdown won't deter the weekend festivities.
A post on the event's website Thursday said the shutdown "does not affect Lincoln Days."
The annual event includes food, crafts and a children's scavenger hunt.
Setters said the possible rainy weather would be a more important factor for the event than a continuing shutdown in Washington.
The park, along with all other national parks, closed on Tuesday.
