A family tradition in Paris has been grabbing national attention for decades. Gene Killion and his father Carl started out as two honey bee researchers. But their passion quickly became a part of their lives- and a staple in Paris. Back in 1980, Paris held a community wide celebration for the honey bee envelope's debut. It then turned into an annual event. This September will be the town's 31st Honey Bee Festival. WCIA 3's Jeff Wagner has their story from Our Town.
