Goodbye summer. Goodbye fireworks and dragon boats. Goodbye Friday after 5 and free Outdoor Movie Nights.
As tough as it may be to admit the unofficial end of summer is here, it truly has been a summer to remember in Owensboro. The Trolley is back. The skate park is open. Most of the downtown construction is finished and the streets and sidewalks are busier than ever.
ROMP and Big O both put very successful years in the history books, but there’s still plenty of live music to be enjoyed at Live on the Banks, Bluegrass on the Banks, and the Lanham Brother’s Jamboree.
Up ahead there’s plenty to look forward to in the fall; the East Bridge Arts Festival & Bridge Day, the Owensboro Air Show, and Friday night high school football. Soon Trunnel’s and Diamond Lakes will begin their fall festivities and Reid’s will again host their famous Apple Festival. Owensboro Symphony Orchestra, Theater Workshop of Owensboro, the RiverPark Center, and Back Alley Musicals have jam packed seasons to keep us all entertained.
Before you know it, the fountains will be turned off for winter and we’ll be heading out to Christmas at Panther Creek, Holiday in the Park, and the downtown Holiday Stroll.
But for now, let’s keep enjoying these warm September evenings and beautiful Kentucky sunsets. Good times are still to come!
