Was it hot? Lord, yes! Was it worth it? Absolutely! What a great weekend in Owensboro it has been! It began Friday night with the grand opening of Smothers Park.

On Saturday, thousands returned to the park to enjoy the daredevil stunt work of the Owensboro Air Show. And, let's face it, many came down to also enjoy the brand new Smothers Park.

This was an exciting tw0-fold event. And to see folks flock to Smothers Park just proves what a great idea it was! With something like the park to attract multitudes to the riverfront, why wouldn't the rest of downtown become more attractive to new business once potential merchants absorb what all that foot traffic could mean.

The Air Show and Smothers Park!

Downtown Owensboro was hoppin' this weekend!
