GRANT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A secular group will be protesting in Grant County today marking the second anniversary of the Ark Encounter’s grand opening.

The annual protest is being organized by Tri-State Freethinkers, which has protested at the attraction for three consecutive years.

The event’s website says the group is protesting for a variety of reasons, including the Ark Encounter’s alleged discriminatory hiring practices, spreading of anti-science beliefs and receiving state tax incentives.

The protest is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. off the exit for the Ark Encounter in Williamstown
