The Massacre That Didn't Happen Brings National Attention to Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky  --  A report of a fake massacre by White House Counselor Kellyeanne Conway creates a great deal of interest in a very real city.   Conway's claim of a Bowling Green Massacre by two terrorists, which never happened, jammed the cell phones of Bowling Green Convention and Visitors Bureau officials last Friday.  

C & V spokesperson Talia Butler says calls have come from around the nation and even from Germany and England from people wanting to know whether the massacre was real and even if there was a monument to it.   Locals are making the most of the notoriety, a pizza parlor is offering a hot-selling "Bowling Green Massacre pizza, and a local print maker is making "I survived the Bowling Green massacre" pins.  

Butler says there are also a lot of calls asking about what there is to do in Bowling Green and they are glad to tell people about the Corvette Museum, cave country, and more.
