Of course lots of people are getting excited for the Big O Festival Saturday night, but there are a few other things going on Saturday that you might want to know about.
First Presbyterian Church (Griffith Avenue) is having their 16th annual Multicultural Festival from 11-6pm. It’s a free event for the entire community to celebrate our diverse culture here in Owensboro. If you’ve never been, it really is interesting. According to their website, the purpose of the festival is to “foster understanding and respect for our similarities and differences so that we may build a stronger community.” There is a full schedule of entertainment plus displays and educational booths that celebrate our community’s ethnic diversity. Kids can enjoy a scavenger hunt as the travel from booth to booth.
Across town, several crews of volunteers will be lending a hand for the YMCA’s “Help Build Hope.” Members from area churches and other organizations will work together to frame walls which will be used to construct two homes for Habitat for Humanity. If you would like to help, just show up and come ready to swing a hammer. Starts at 8am with breakfast at the H.L. Neblett Community Center (801 W. 5th St.) followed by worship and construction instruction. The Help Build Hope event then starts at 9:00am at 4th Street Baptist Church (821 W. 4th St.). For more information call Isaac Coffey at the Owensboro Family YMCA. 270-926-9622 ext. 820.
Let’s see if there’s anyone out there who can do it all: help build a house, “travel” around the world, and top it all off with a night of country music under the stars at the Big O! Any takers?
